There are shady spots like a theater where kids can put on a puppet show. There are plenty of medieval towers, monkey bars, rope bars, rock-climbing wall, bridges, a tube slide, a tire swing, baby swings, and regular swings. There's a separate area for the smallest tots and plenty of seating for adults.

Features include the playground grills, picnic shelters, and picnic tables. A baseball diamond and volleyball court is adjacent to the playground. Clean water features, like misters, are placed throughout the park, to offer relief on warm days. Sunny Fields Park's very clean grounds and facilities make visitors feel welcome.

Sunny Fields Park, built in 2003, is in the city of Solvang - a Disneyland-style town with Danish windmills and lots of tourist stores and restaurants.
