Urbandale Parks Challenge: Golfview West Park
We've officially visited a lot of parks in the Des Moines area! I would say that the park we visited this evening, Golfview West Park, is among my favorite parks for kids to play. It's surrounded by shade, but enough people are walking, jogging, and playing basketball that it still felt safe and busy! The playground is designed to look like a fort, which works well with the forested area and little creek.
There's also a neat and slightly challenging rope bridge for the kids to cross, and Jo liked playing in the fort area below.
The kids played for a good while. I enjoyed all the birds singing and flying low under the tree canopy. Seriously, great park. We all enjoyed ourselves!
