In the search for our next favorite park, I remember passing this park many times when we had to head somewhere else to go. So, we finally hit up this easily accessible park on Indian Park Road (15050) in Goodyear.
Lots of slides, climbing features and dramatic play areas under a shade were easily accessed from the parking lot.
Two metal rockers were in the same sand lot that the playground was in.
Lights on the canopy for those hot nights when you want to get out of the house!
A ramada with seating and a bathroom behind it. There wasn’t a lot of seating as these tables were pretty small. And if you are a modest mom or have a child who doesn’t like to pee in public-be warned-the bathroom stalls had no doors.
Swings, but no baby swings. And yes, I have a circle on the picture. The reason I added this was because the fence is to protect kids from going into the parking lot, but it doesn’t connect to the light pole and there is really no restricted access to the parking lot. Since there are two baseball fields, a basketball court, a soccer/green space area and a sand volleyball court, I can imagine that this parking lot can get extremely busy, and the fence is lacking from keeping wandering children out of harms’ way.
There were also a few benches that were made to be “part of the fence”, however, you can see that there is a huge gaping area underneath the benches that a child can easily climb under and into the path of the parking lot. I really had to scratch my head at this whole construction. It was partially thought out, but I think it could have been designed much better to protect wandering children. So, for that reason, I wouldn’t really suggest this to parents of kids who have wandering children on a busy Saturday or Sunday (or anytime there would be a lot of traffic at the park).
The lit basketball courts.
Sand Volleyball Courts.
The kids liked this park, but it wasn’t anything crazy like our new favorite Kiwanis Park in Peoria. Great if you are in the area and need a place to run your kids out-if you don’t have wanderers!
