Arrowhead Shores Park-Peoria

I decided to head out in the Surprise-ish area for a new park and picked Arrowhead Shores Park. Not a far drive from Surprise, but this Park was not easy to located based on the Peoria website’s reported address. So, before you go, I will tell you exactly  where you want to be. You want to park at W Fargo and 89th Avenue.

There is an actual parking lot there and easy entrance into the park without having to cross the wash that we ended up doing. This would probably not be a great idea to do if you go after it has just rained!

I got the kids all out of the car before I realized the parking lot so we just forded the dry bed and proceeded across. No Big deal.

The park had two separate playscapes (both covered)-one for the bigger kids and one for the toddlers. They were fairly separated and had lots of sand everywhere, but it was a quiet neighborhood with little traffic so I wasn’t too worried. There was ample greenspace for the kids to run around in as well. There was also a nice trail that went throughout the park. As you can tell the park is a long stretch of area between Tumblewood and stretches North to Kings Ave.

This was the “big kids” area. Lots of different things to climb and slide. There was even a few places where the little kids could play.

I do have to say I was very disappointed at the amount of cigarette butts and other trash was in the sand. There multiple Circle K cups and other bottles that made the park less appealing. I found most of them over by this play area.

There was a nice little area for the little kids to act like a big kid with this bridge and small slide.

Another youngish slide next to a monkey bar thing that my five year old couldn’t reach.

Two swings, but no canopy. In the background you can see the toddler playscape area.

There was a nice little tunnel and a slide that Munchie was climbing up and another slide. And monkey bars, which kind of made me wonder about this being truly toddler friendly or age appropriate.

As you can also see, other than the monkey barks, this closely boarders a few homes as well.

There was also a ramada with two picnic benches. No bathrooms, unfortunately, which was a sad state of affairs for us while we are finishing up Giggle’s potty training. She’s so close, but a bathroom would have been super handy at this park
