While perhaps not the largest of jungle gyms in the Sacramento region, this well-designed park is proud evidence of a unified and resilient community. The original playground, located less than a mile away, was destroyed by fire twice within several years. Both times, local businesses and residents volunteered their time and supplies to rebuild it. A playground remains on the original site, but the concept of pirate-themed Fort Natomas was ultimately relocated to the grounds of the South Natomas Community Center. The mood of families at Fort Natomas is friendly and appropriately proud.
