Does Clemyjontri have restrooms?

I hear the playground is so l large it's easy to lose sight of my
child. Is that true?
The playground is very large, approximately 2 acres. There is no place on the playground where you will be able to view your child at all times. You will need to actively supervise your child or children at all times by following your child throughout the different areas of the playground so that they are supervised. We do have a couple of suggestions to make supervision easier:
- Visit during less crowded times (before 10:00am and after 3:00pm)
- Come with another adult
- Choose a place to meet if you and your child should become separated
