Visiting parks during the summer months provides endless hours of fun in the sun. If you’re looking forward to spending your summer lying under the shade of a tree, playing games on a lush, green lawn, or letting your kids run off their energy on safe play structure, we suggest WaKeeney’s Swimming Pool Park!
The WaKeeney Swimming Pool Park has a long history of providing outdoor fun for area families and has become an outdoor oasis with a full day’s worth of activities for every person in your family.
Play Areas for Everyone
The playground equipment is a combination of fun and challenging climbs, slides, tunnels, and swings that are all placed inside a play-safe area with a bark chip ground cover. The different play structures are geared toward varying age groups, from toddlers to big kids, and a low-profile boarder wall surrounds the area to help parents keep their youngest children inside and easily seen. Park benches around the perimeter let parents enjoy their time watching their kids run off extra energy while they enjoy a book or conversations with friends.
A sand volleyball pit and a basketball court are on site for pick-up games between teens and adults and can be accessed any time of day. Get your best players together and bring your ball down to the park for a quick, fun workout.
Take a Stroll Through the Park
The recent installation of a walking trail has added another way to get some exercise in while you’re at the park. The sidewalk is flat and paved, so senior walkers and strollers experience a safe and smooth stroll under the beautiful shade trees.
Picnic Shelters For Celebrating
When hunger strikes, unpack your picnic baskets under one of several shelters. There are enough picnic tables for a family reunion or birthday party. Call the WaKeeney City building to reserve one for your summer gathering. (785.743.5791)
Long stretches of lush lawns are found throughout the grounds to allow for tag, Simon Says, and other classic summer games. Bring your equipment and set up your own lawn games in these wide-open spaces. They are big enough for people to host badminton, cornhole, horseshoes, or croquet all at the same time!
Ready for Comfort and Ease of Use
There are facilities on site in the park, including a modern bathroom building and handicapped parking and accessible sidewalks.
