Magic Mountain Playground, re-opened in 2006 after a complete redesign, contains two play areas, one for 2-5 year olds and another for 5-12 year olds. Children enjoy eleven slides and thirteen swings, plus spring riders, balance beams, and a 42-foot high castle atop a five-foot hill. The slide from the top of the castle is one of the longest enclosed slides in California. Flanking the hill and extending into the playground are two huge purple dragons.
Coyote Point has the Peninsula's only science and nature museum, CuriOdyssey(formerly the Coyote Point Museum). CuriOdyssey is a family-friendly museum that features hands-on science exhibits that explore how nature's complex systems work together. CuriOdyssey's Wildlife Habitats house live reptiles, amphibians, mammals and birds. Stop by and visit these animals that are native to the Bay Area. The museum maintains regular hours.
