Our quest began at Fairmount Park, which is near Wichita State (1647 N. Yale http://www.wichita.gov/ParkandRec/CityParks/Pages/Fairmount.aspx). It’s a modern combination splash park and jungle gym, so you get the best of both worlds.
- Splash Pad
- Playground Base: Rubber
- Picnic Tables
- Tennis Court
Mom Tips: Splash pad shuts off at 8pm, so make sure you’re not like us and get there with enough time to play. Unfortunately this is one of those areas where litterbugs are popular. We spoke to a loyal local grandmother and she said that the Wichita Parks and Rec crew comes daily and to clean up the park. There are a few areas where maintenance is needed, but it is a very loved park.
Since we missed out on the splash pad fun, we’ll be back soon!
