Waterworks Park

Waterworks Park is in Beaver Dam.  My kiddo was pretty disappointed to discover there was not actually any water to play in...

 but she quickly recovered when she saw the awesome pirate ship playground.
Waterworks Park is an inclusive, handicapped-accessible park.  The playground is also entirely fenced in with only one opening, which makes it a bit more reassuring to give the kids some independence.

There is a picnic shelter with bathrooms.

Lincoln Park

Lincoln Park in Watertown is your typical park.  We had fun playing on the two playsets.  There is also a sandbox and some swings.

The park also has lots of green space and a picnic shelter with bathrooms.

South Park

South Park in Oshkosh has a little something for everyone.  There is a beautiful bridge often used for wedding photos, ducks to feed, multiple playgrounds (one of which is an inclusive playground that is handicapped-accessible), and a splash pad.  There are also restrooms.

Dodge County YMCA

The Dodge County YMCA has plenty to keep your family busy!  There are a couple of playgrounds, athletic facilities...and pools!  Our family has spent our time in the family adventure pool.

This is a great place for little ones.  It has a zero-depth entry with a kiddie slide and some water fountains and features.  There is a lazy river and a tube waterslide as well.

Be sure to check the schedules online because you can only play during designated "open swim" times.

Union Park

Union Park in Watertown is on a dead-end street in an out-of-the-way part of town.  It is home to two blue and white play structures.

We had lots of fun trying both!  There are some unique features, like this fun tv featuring your very own programming.

There is quite a bit of open space as well as a picnic shelter with bathrooms.
