Sheridan Park and Sprayground in Des Moines

Sheridan Park is one of Des Moines’ neighborhood parks with a brand new playground and an existing sprayground. This park is a treasure for the east side of Des Moines. My kids loved this small but condensed playground structure. The slide is wider than a typical slide and my kids could not get enough when playing on it. My kids also enjoyed all the unique ways to climb around the main playground structure and enjoyed racing and timing each other finding different ways to complete the loop. 

The playground equipment also has several separate smaller spinners, bouncers, small play, and rocks. There are also toddler buckets and regular swings.


Sheridan Park is located at 4000 Hull Ave in Des Moines.


Open daily from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m., May 1st to September 31st, free of charge.
