Tree House Park

Tree House Park In Sudden Valley, surrounded by houses, in a secluded valley rests Tree House Park. The park itself is a mixture of old growth forest, moss and lawn, giving the feel of a forest glen. Along with the vegetation, there are two commanding play structures: a tree house and a concrete bunker.

In the middle of the aptly named park is a gigantic play house built around a cut off red cedar tree which seems to rise from the rotten old growth stump at its base. Accent to the tree house comes from a staircase built using branches interlocked together in a log furniture style, giving the house a log cabin look. Descent from the tree house can be attempted using the twenty foot long fireman’s pole that protrudes from the floor. The tree house is roofed and provides a commanding view of the park.

The concrete bunker, which probably is a water tower, appears like a fortress in the upper corner of the park. The bunker has a staircase to the top and a fast and steep tube slide to reach the bottom. These two structures and the trees, dips, and hills in the park make for an excellent setting for a game of ‘Capture the Flag’. There is no picnic tables, no bathrooms and no parking since many of the homes backyards open onto the park it can feel like you are in someone’s private backyard.
