From the website: "Wapelhorst Park contains a mix of active and passive recreation components throughout the park. Major destination amenities within the park include a four field softball complex, an aquatic center with speed slide and the Gould Community Building.  Two ponds, three shelters, an interpretative nature trail and wildflower area and several large open lawn areas and picnic sites throughout the park provide a variety of passive recreation opportunities."

This is a very large and very popular park.  The playground was just completely renovated in late 2017. 





They have rock walls, chain climbers, slides, bridges, stepping stones, tons of bars and poles, and lots of climbing things.










 They have 2 sling swings, 2 baby swings, an adaptive swing, and a modified expression swing.



This spinning thing is awesome!

There is also this small play area over by the concession and the ball fields. Great for keeping little sibs occupied during ball practices and games!


Thank you Erin for the photos!
