Stratford Crossing Park in Waukee, Iowa

Stratford Crossing Park is a brand-new park in Waukee, Iowa. The two giant towers with bright blue slides coming out immediately draw kids into this playground. The large structure is a climber’s and slider’s dream. (My kids also loved pretending each tower was their house.) As the kids walk around to the backside of the large structures a whole new shaded section of the playground comes into view with multiple ways to climb and explore the main structure.

This playground has multiple features and freestanding additions to the park. My kids especially loved doing tricks on the long zip line! There is also a unique twist to the traditional see-saw, spinners, bouncers, and a balance area. 


Stratford Crossing Park is located at 1250 NW Yorktown Dr in Waukee. It is near the intersection of NW Stratford Drive and NW Yorktown Drive.
