Bicentennial Park-Surprise

Bicentennial Park is in the North part of Surprise right off of Grand Avenue. 16705 N. Nash Street.

As I drove into the parking lot, I realized why I hadn’t done a review on this park yet-it’s not really little kid friendly.


Although the 5 year olds can’t fit in the baby swings they have here, that is about the only thing little ones can do. However, my five year old had a blast!

IMG_6313Munchie was up on every climbing thing as soon as he could. Giggles, saddened by no slides, tried to run back to the car.


There is a ramada with 6 picnic benches. Unfortunately, its far from the play area and on the other side of the park from the bathrooms.


Munchie had fun with this twisting, rotating thing.


This was a little much for him though. Yet, he tried.


There was also this rock wall thing. I think it was missing a piece. The ground is the rubberized material in case of falls.


There is a lighted field. The park is anchored triangularly by the baseball field, the ramada and the bathrooms.


The swings and the bathroom behind it. There were two baby swings and two big kid swings. I didn’t get to check out the bathrooms since Giggles was marching unhappily away to the car, but they looked clean from the outside.

Also listed on the City Website is that there is a Half Basketball Court that is lit. I did not see it. I would also be wary of this park when it rains. There is quite a wash that little ones could get into just a little bit aways from the grassy areas.

This park would be good for the bigger kids, but unfortunately, not one I would mark as five and under.
