A few favorite parks in Peoria

Are you looking for a few good places to play outside? Well, we have done TONS of research over the years and have some great parks for you!

Scotland Yard Park

Scotland Yard Park

This park is a little bit southwest of Grand and the 101 and probably is off the beaten track of many people. However, I LOVED this park. There is a dog park and it really was a gem in the rough of an industrial area. With bathrooms and shade, this is one to check out and be a little more adventurous.

Apache Park Peoria

Kiwanis Park Peoria

Kiwanis Park in Peoria is another one that is off the beaten trail but has an incredible zipline feature that is so fun, for adults and kids, that it is worth traveling for. The rest of the park has some fun features too. There are also tennis courts and green space, but the Zipline is really the coolest feature!

pioneer park

Pioneer Park in Peoria has an awesome playground, tons of ball fields, bathrooms and of course, this great shaded splash playground. With shaded ramadas and even a small urban fishing lake, this park is one of the top in the valley (and it does get crowded!). Make sure you wear a bathing suit!
