Avery Park, Kirkwood

Location: Corner of N. Harrison Ave. and Avery Dr. (just north of Manchester and to the west of Kirkwood Road) Kirkwood, MO 63122

Amenities: playground, half court basketball, picnic shelter, sprayground


Playground ground cover: poured rubber

Avery Park is a small park, but the city of Kirkwood did an amazing job laying out the site. The playground has a swing set with 2 sling swings and 2 baby swings. There are 2 unique climbing structures, one for preschoolers and one for school-aged kids. My 3 year old loved the preschool structure, with steps to climb around, a tunnel and a slide. There are also drums, but the drums are set up pretty high for young kids, my 3 year old can reach but for kids any smaller, they'd be too high. The school-aged structure just has a rope climbing wall and suspended circular climbing rings. There are also 2 baby swings and 2 sling swings. The large trees which border the park bring shade and help seclude the small park from the surrounding neighborhood.

Parking is on street only (watch for no parking signs). Unfortunately there are no restroom facilities at this park.
