Just across the way from I-40, near Uptown Target, you will find Jerry Cline Park. This Northeast Heights park has a tennis complex that can be seen from the road. However, further exploration of the park will reveal a great play structure that is hidden in a shaded area with a vast green space next to it. There is an extended boardwalk that spans the entire length of the play structure. It is the perfect walkway for toddlers to stretch their legs. There are several picnic tables nearby and the playground is covered by wood chips instead of gravel or sand.

There is also a covered area for picnics. There are a lot of mature trees in a huge green area, this helps boost the appeal of the park. But the best aspect of the park is the one-mile natural trail that runs its length.
