Our 12th park is by far my favorite!! Elm Neighborhood Park is at the corner of Central and Grove. We drive by this park a lot and the boys have been begging to play here. Strangely, I can’t find anything about it on the Wichita Parks & Rec site. There was an article from 2015, when it was named, but nothing since.
- FENCE! This is the first one we’ve been to that is fenced in!
- Playground Base: AstroTurf!
- Swings: None
- Picnic Table (one)
- Bench (one)
Mom Tips: There is a fence around the entire perimeter, with two openings at the south side (along Central). This is a must because the park borders a very busy intersection. It is a cute and little park, with one picnic table and one bench. We were the only ones there, but I bet it could get crowded quickly. The turf was nice, too! I just felt cozy and comfortable being there… almost like I was in a really nice private park or backyard, even with all the traffic nearby! Plus it was clean and well-kept. We will definitely be back!
Kid Tips: Weston liked the leg slide, which made me nervous. Sully loved the bench/hanging lounge chair under the equipment. They were so happy to finally get to try this park!
