Our next stop was the park nestled between Century II, Douglas and the Arkansas River (401 W. Douglas – http://www.wichita.gov/ParkandRec/CityParks/Pages/APWoodard.aspx).
This park also has an amazing multi-level fountain with a center walk area. One of my friends got married here, and I can see why! I remember coming to an Easter sunrise service here as a kid and it was beautiful!

Mom Tips: On a hot day it’s going to be hard to keep your kiddos out of the refreshing looking water, but you’ll want to. There were a few homeless men wading at the top, and under the waterfalls it smelled strongly of urine. I think the park would be a great place for a picnic, but little kids will be drawn to the fountain, so be prepared for whining!
Kid Tips: Weston was upset because it was hot and he wanted to get in the fountain. Sully agreed it was sad, but the statue was cool.
