Firefighters park in Troy has one barrier-free play medium-sized play structure coupled with one small vehicle play structure.  The medium-sized structure has a couple of slides, fun climbing elements as well as an astroturf surface.  The structure is okay.  It feels like it was built to keep children entertained while other family members are engaged in sports activities.  I have seen much more impressive structures at neighborhood parks in Troy.
