Don’t blink as you drive down Bank Street or you may miss the Califon park and playground. The hidden stone path that serves as a driveway opens up to a field of beauty. Though the park has changed in the last few years from an amazing wooden structure to a more contemporary ASTM approved playground, this little playground has lots to offer.
