Kade's Playground, Herculaneum

Location: 886 Joachim Ave, Herculaneum, MO 63048

Website: https://www.unlimitedplay.org/kades-playground/

Playground Ground Cover: Poured Rubber

This is an Unlimited Play Playground, and it's amazing. There are so many fun things about this playground but I think everyone will agree that the volcano is the best part. My daughter played in there almost the whole time with some other little girls. It's open inside and they were pretending all kinds of things.

There is one baby swing, one Expression Swing, 2 adaptive swings, 2 sling swings, and a saucer swing. There is a rolly slide, 3 other slides, and the volcano slide. There are rings, spider webbing to climb, musical instruments, spinning chairs, and a sound board. There is a tic tac toe board, a maze board, and a small table and chairs under a play structure. There is an animal tracker where you have to find certain animals hidden throughout the playground and a couple rock walls. There are also poles and bars galore. There are benches and rocks to sit on but not much shade. They are going to add a splash pad too but no date is set for construction, they're still trying to raise the funds.

I included the label "creek" on this post because Joachim Creek is to the east of the playground. There seems to be a path leading to it but I didn't go down there to see how it is. 

This is the view from the bathroom building. It's kind of far from the playground which you can see in the distance. And you have to walk over lots of dirt and mud. It seems like there is construction going on here but I'm not sure what they're doing. 

This is the building that houses the bathrooms. Honestly, they're gross.

These plays the sounds of water when you hit them. 

 They are currently raising money for the splash pad. It is gonna be amazing!!!!!

There's a cute little table with 2 chairs under this tic tac toe board. They are enjoying their lunch in the shade. (The only shade on the whole playground I might add).

hiding spot and/or bench

One of the few playgrounds in St. Louis that has an Expression Swing! Some of the others are Faust, Watson Trails, Suson, Spanish Lake, Bella Fontaine, and Tilles. Hopefully all parks will have these someday.
