Knights Field Park in Wooster is a great destination for young children. The park consists of a large playground, a miniature city for kids to ride their bikes in, and large sprayground open during the summer months. The playground and Kiddy City are FREE but there is a per person charge ($5 for youth, $7 for adults) to use the sprayground.
Knights Field Park Playground
Knights Field Park has a large play ground (4,929 square foot) with multiple slides, bridges, tunnels, various climbing structures, monkey bars and a swing set with infant and regular swings.
The highlights of the playground were the blue tube tunnels that the kids could hide in and the small merry-go-round (not pictured).
My kids loved riding their bikes around this miniature city, pretending they were in cars riding around on the roads, stopping at stores and going to work. I also used the opportunity to teach them about traffic safety and to reenforce the rules of the road (i.e. stopping at stop signs, looking both ways, what the colors of the traffic light mean).
The City of Wooster Parks Department really went all out when designing the 12,036 square foot mini city and included:
Seven different buildings, including houses and stores.
A working traffic light.
A railroad crossing and various traffic signs including stop signs and speed limit signs.
Two bridges over a “river”
And of course Parking Spaces.
Knights Field Park Sprayground
Along with Kiddy City there is a 19,500 square foot spray ground with 7 different spraying features and multiple fountains to keep the children entertained. I liked that there were multiple picnic tables and restrooms nearby.
We were at the park for just under 3 hours (we didn't use the sprayground) and my kids had fun the entire time. I always appreciate finding fun things that keep them entertained for so long.
Between the playground, Kiddy City and sprayground kids could easily spend the entire day at Knights Field Park without getting bored.
