Have you looked for a park near Tolmachoff Farms in Glendale? We found this cute little park and thought it would be good to share. Bicentennial Park also has some interesting trees and some shade!
Bicentennial Park is located at 71st Avenue and West Missouri Avenue in Glendale.
The only thing I didn’t like about the park was that there was quite a bit of litter around which always makes me sad (need to put gloves in my car to pick up, note to self! HA!)
This type of playground we have seen at multiple locations, like Sundance Park in Buckeye, Sahuaro Park in Glendale and Veteran’s Park in Tolleson. There are multiple webs to climb on, and bouncey steppers, a “skeleton” to climb through and a slide. The slide is only accessible from a little ladder with knobs, so not very good for little ones. There was also a little “microphone” to call to the other side of the playground.
The nets and “skeleton”! You can also see there are nice shady trees in the background. I love shady trees!
There were two baby swings and two big kids swings, but not under a shade. However, when the trees are in bloom it might provide enough shade.
Bicentennial Park also had a few picnic benches, and a small ramada, but no bathrooms. However, there was a water fountain!
The toddler playground. Honestly, I was underwhelmed by this playground area for the little ones as there isn’t much to do . The random bar to hang off, a small slide, a little “dramatic play” desk area and a few manipulatives to make noise. This play area wasn’t all that inviting for little ones.
These made a little bell noise and on the other side of this were two drums.
Four Raquetball courts that are lit. Similar to Montara Park.
Bicentennial Park also had a lit basketball court.
The best part of the Bicentennial Park were the cool trees. However, Giggles was convinced that she was going to make a tree house in the trees and was very upset when I said that wasn’t going to happen. They weren’t good climbing trees, but they were great “pretending” trees. The kids really like hopping over them and playing around the base of the tree. I think they had the most fun pretending at the park instead of playing on the playgrounds.
I definitely don’t recommend this park for toddlers might be ok at the park if you have bigger kids, but if you only have Toddlers-skip Bicentennial Park!
