Designed to compliment the surrounding neighborhood, Raintree Park provides a good example of park planning that integrates urban park facilities with a natural lowland ecosystem. This park boasts many natural amenities such as Wolf Pen Creek, sharp slopes, and 50' water oaks. Developed facilities include a playground, shelter, picnic units, and a seating area with benches. Development funding was through the 1981 bond issue. Renovations in 1992 added a volleyball court and concrete trails for walking or jogging. A new swing set and playground were installed in 2001.
