Preview Post: Third Ward Park

Third Ward Park in Antigo has a small climber and lots of space.  They flood it for skating in the winter.  I don't see any sort of shelter or much for shade trees.

There is a seasonal port-a-potty.

Preview Post: Railway Activity Park

Railway Activity Park in Antigo looks like a really fun place to visit in the winter.  They have a sledding hill and ice rink.  There's also a skate park.  I cannot seem to find much about what they have to offer in the summertime (except a grassy hill, haha).

Preview Post: Saratoga Park

Saratoga Park in Antigo looks like a pretty nice park.  It seems to be focused on athletic fields, but there is a climber as well.  There is a restroom, but it is only supposed to be opened seasonally.  They have a large picnic shelter as well.

Preview Post: Robin's Roost Park

Well, Robin's Roost is technically listed as a "micro park" in Antigo.  It is really just a green space with a couple of shaded benches, but I guess if you are downtown and need to take a rest, it is a place to let go of the kids' hands for a few minutes.

Hunter Oaks Park

If you are looking for a step into suburbia, this is it!  Hunter Oaks is a very nice, well-kept park in Watertown.  It is a green space in the middle of a subdivision.  There are two large climbers, a walking/biking path, and lots of grass.

This park has some nice, unique features as well, such as this adaptive seat swing.
When my kiddo and I were there, there were some neighborhood kids who had biked there to play.  Families were in and out.  It really did have a nice neighborhood feel, and there was plenty to keep my four year old entertained.

Be warned, though: there are no bathrooms!!
