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.

Drove 40 minutes to get there and the city part was locked. Sign said open 7 days a week 8 am to 8 pm. No one had the combo to open and city building was closed because it’s Sunday. Disappointed.
We were excited to try this park because we saw it on here. We drove all the way from canton. Waste odd time! The bike part, although cute, very run down! Can’t see the parking spots, light not working, and buildings fading. Extremely disappointed in the splash park. $7 for adults, $5 for kids, so I ended up spending $22 for a very small area and the kids were bored in less than an hour. Never going again!
It’s two years later I’m writing this, but NOW it’s a lot better. They fixed the stoplight, so now it works, and idk for sure, but I heard they’re going to repaint kiddy city. Plus, these parks are meant for small children. I guess It depends on your kids. I don’t have kids, but I do babysit, and sometimes I bring them there, and they had a blast!
The fee for the spray ground is $5 for 4 and up. 3 and under is free. Adults are also free if they aren’t using the spray ground. Also if you’re a member of ymca, it’s free. Just show your pass at the door
Is this open on the Fourth of July? The number is useless as no one answers nor do they call you back. Anyone know?
How much is the sprayground at Knight’s park?
Spray park was $5 for my 5 year old free for 3 and under
Do you know what the hours are for the spray park? I’ve seen conflicting information.

I’m not certain of the hours. I’d suggest calling the parks department to find out for sure. Here is the number: 330-263-5207
Hope that helps,
We were surprised at the $5.oo fee for the splash park. NOWHERE does it say there is a fee. No signs, nothing mentioned on the website! Is this the fee they charged when they had the pool?? I thought it was a little over the top for the splash park. If they are going to charge, then please advertise it!
Northeast Ohio Family Fun says
I’m not sure if that was the same fee that was charged when the pool was there. I am also surprised that they don’t list the prices on their website. I added a note to this review to indicate there was a per person charge.
Hopefully you were still able to enjoy your visit.

Went to the spray park today with my grandchildren. It was awesome. They are two and one. The Kiddie City was great too. We will no doubt be going back. Some trash around. We were the only ones in the spray park. I think the price is just too steep. Maybe if it was lowered, you would have more visitors to that part of the park. Perhaps the workers could pick up some of the trash on less busy days. Thanks for listening.
Find Time for Fun says
Glad you and your grandchildren had a good time. We haven’t been yet this summer, but my kids just requested a trip to Kiddie City the other day so I think we need to get there before school starts.
I agree with your comments about the spray park admission. Wish they would lower the price a little, I’m sure more would visit then.
Thanks for letting us know about your visit!
