Sylvan Ridge Park in Urbandale, Iowa

Sylvan Ridge Park is a neighborhood park in Urbandale tucked back on a quiet cul de sac. It was newly updated in the fall of 2022. This park features a swing set that has standard swings, baby swings, a tire swing, and a loved generation swing–where both the grownup and small child can swing together.

The new 5-12-year-old playground has several slides. My kids loved all the unique ways to climb up to the top of the structure. 

Sylvan Ridge Park is located on the extensive paved trail system that runs throughout Urbandale. After playing here, we walked five minutes (.25 miles) on the trail to the all inclusive playground at Northview Park. We loved to be able to check out both parks on the same trip.


Sylvan Ridge Park is located at 4922 75th Circle in Urbandale.
