We stopped at Duke Watkins Park while driving to the Grand Canyon. It was a nice place to stop and let the kids run around and get some fresh air. The playground is part of a larger recreation complex that includes a swim center and a skate park.
There is one play structure that is designed mainly for ages 5-12, but our 2 year old could navigate it easily with supervision. There are four slides; one is a tube slide, one is a spiral slide and then there are two shorter slides. The ground covering is a mixture of sand and gravel.
The playground has covered picnic areas around it and lots of open space. The dog isn't ours, but we thought he was doing a pretty neat trick.
