Buffalo Ridge Park-Phoenix

We were not even close to this park, but I wanted something near the Deer Valley Airport for the littles, Dimples, who is so in love with anything that moves.


This park is at 16th Street and Westcott in North Phoenix

The way into the parking lot is on Wescott Dr.

There was a good amount of parking as well as a bathroom (phew, I needed it!)

It also had beautiful scenery and some hiking trails as well.


And of course, some beautiful shaded playgrounds. The swings, however (2 baby and 2 big kid) were not shaded.

There was also this cool American Sign Language and braille sign!

The toddler area had the “shade sails” over it, but was great for the wee ones you might have. One of the better playgrounds for the littlest ones. There is also sand underneath much of the playground, so you can bring sand toys for your little wanderers.

My kids love the speakers (where you talk in one end, and can hear it at another). Of course, my kids talk in such a loud voice you can her them anyhow.

The tan “net” looking thing actually moves like a wave! It even moves as you climb it. A great challenge for my monkey like oldest.

The three sided rock wall was miniature but challenge enough for the 8 and under crowd.

Two great slides!

There were also some ramadas (people were sitting there), green space, lit fields, and shade from some trees around the park. If you are going up to see the planes at Deer Valley Airport, this park is nearby and lots of fun!
