Veterans Park Playground in Arlington

Location: 3600 W. Arkansas Lane, Arlington, TX, 76016. Located at the southwest corner of the Arkansas Lane and Spanish Trail intersection. It may be difficult to see the playground from the street, but it's close to the parking lot.

What makes it noteworthy: Both play structures are a good size. Younger kids have their own small climbing wall. Older kids have a tube slide and 3 levels of climbing equipment. There are spinning toys and swings for all ages. The playground is not stroller friendly if you have an infant that you need to push around.

Extras: This 103 acre park has plenty of room for families to spread out and have a good time! There is a disc golf course, an equestrian trail, practice fields, pavilions, and a trail for biking or hiking.

Safety: Veterans Park scored a 21 out of 24 on the Safety Report Card giving it an overall grade of an A. Considering the equipment looks like it has seen a lot of use, it's all in good condition.
