Playground ground cover: Poured Rubber

Kirkwood park is huge, and amazing. It has a ton of amenities and the playground is def worth a visit.

The older kid playground is large at Kirkwood Park. There are multiple slides and places to climb,  3 sling swings, an ADA swing, a saucer swing, sit and spins, a huge boulder to climb, hand-over-hand rings and more. There is a metal slide which can be used for kids with a cochlear implant. There is also a spray fountain near this playground. It's just a pole but it's still fun.




The saucer swing was not there recently (Sep 2017) so I'm not sure if it's being replaced or taken out








The only negative thing I can see about the park is the poured rubber needs to be replaced. 

 Drums












The bathroom building in between the 2 playgrounds has a Tropical Moose Shaved Ice window. It's seasonal though so it's mostly open in the summer.  Very nice feature for a park though!









The little kid playground has a play structure that has several slides, a tunnel, a rock wall, and lots of bars and poles. Also in this area are 2 baby swings, a sandbox, a small play house, 4 drums, and 2 rocking animals.









Elevated table filled with sand and pebbles





 During the summer water comes out of this black pole, which the kids love incorporating into their sand play. So bring buckets and sand toys!





Spray pole is on from Memorial through Labor Day





Walker Lake is gorgeous and stocked with bluegill, catfish, and largemouth bass.
