Palo Verde Park Peoria

If you haven’t guessed,  I LOVE going to different parks with my kids. My younger two, now aged 4 and 5 can pretty much do everything at the parks so those days when I was looking for the baby swings and a toddler friendly area aren’t my main priorities. However, I know that my readers…

Estrella Vista Park South

In our “Double header” of parks, I have to say this one ranks as one of my favorite parks ever. Other than there is no bathroom . WAHH! This park is located in that “blank” space on the map-157th and W Ripple is the closest intersection. It is a HUGE park with lit basketball courts, a…

Sunset Park-Wickenburg

We have been eagerly awaiting Wickenburg’s splash pad opening for years now (as I am sure the residents have as well!).

Emerald Park-Mesa

This Park starts with a funny story of how I found it, so you can skip ahead, but you’ll miss a kind of funny flub I made. We had some time to kill between going to Sea Life Arizona and Bounce U in Gilbert, so I picked up a Starbucks coffee using a gift card and…

Rio Vista Splashpad

We took an opportunity to take pictures on a night where there was no one splashing, because it was so windy and cold. But, I think we were able to get some beautiful pictures. Rio Vista Splashpad is right next to the community center (It is gorgeous)  and the Rio Vista Park. The splash pad at…
