Website: http://www.ballwin.mo.us/Departments/Parks-and-Recreation/Ballwin-Parks/Vlasis-Park/

Playground ground cover: rubber mats

This park features a huge playground, with areas for toddlers, preschoolers and school-aged children. There are numerous slides, swings (2 baby and 6 regular), and lots of places to climb. The park also has a pond and walking paths.

The sprayground is on from Memorial Day thru Labor Day, from noon to 6 pm, and located right next to the playground. It goes on for 20 mins and off for 20 mins, which can be annoying to littles who want to keep playing in the water!

The biggest complaint I have about this playground is that the restrooms are not close. They are a bit of a hike up a hill. Also the rubber flooring has seen better days. But besides that this playground has a lot to offer and I love the umbrellas providing shade.






 This stand up teeter totter was a big hit with all the kids














 These tire climbers are different and my kids loved climbing up them



 Little play house with seats inside.


 This baby rock wall is kind of worn


My biggest issue with the splashpad is that it doesn't turn on until noon, and then shuts off every 20 minutes for 20 minutes. Kind of annoying when your kids just want to play in the water and they can't and don't understand why.
