Pictures and Details
Our family has been counting down the days for Triumph Park in Waukee, Iowa to open to the public. There has been a bunch of buzz around the Epic Inclusive Playground and it did not disappoint. The entire 15,000-square-foot structure is impressive.
My number one favorite feature of the playground area was the large, winding slide. I believe it may be the tallest slide in the Des Moines area. Even my husband made a climb up and a ride down!
The entire play area is full of slides, climbing features and so much more. The playground is huge! Even though it was a bit crowded when we made a visit (the second day it was open) I still felt there was plenty of space for kids to run and play. I really loved all the bright colors!
This area below was surrounded by squishy turf!
The details on the Epic Inclusive Playground and surrounding the playground were really thought out. If your child may be scared of heights or not a fan of going down slides, there are interactive things to do all over including playing music, fun swings, looking out telescopes, “merry-go-rounds”, climbing squishy rocks, and much more. The features encourage the children to use all of their senses which I love!
To the side of the large playground is a smaller one for the little kiddos in your life. I love the little guide that is posted on the playground to encourage caregivers to get involved and ask questions.
In addition, there is a large walking path that goes around the pond, the Triumph Park Inclusive Fishing Pier, a “Cooling Zone” to cool off in some shade, and lots of green space to play. The area also included concession stands, batting cages, softball fields, a seating area, and a practice field.
