Atten Park In Wheaton

Place: Atten Park
Location:  1720 S. Wiesbrook in Wheaton
Type of Place: Park
Secret: You'll love the squishy padded ground, which is designed like a baseball field!
Appropriate ages: everyone
Cost: Free!

We got invited to a picnic at this park last week, and we were delighted to find an awesome new playground! This place has everything!
There is a really cool jungle gym wirh a ton of different climbing equipment!

There is also a smaller tot lot for younger kids.

They loved playing restaurant in this little compartment.


Pufferfish and the other preschools adored this little see-saw, which just has a gentle bounce to it.


Of course they also both loved the swings! Pufferfish wanted a million underdogs! (This swing is one of those special swings for kids who can't hold their bodies up well in a regular swing, but Pufferfish loves to chill out in them. There are regular swings, and baby swings, as well!)



The large sand area is another favorite! It has diggers, and tunnels too!


I liked that the ground was very soft and squishy. It felt like the kids could fall from the sky, and they'd bounce! Of course thats probably not exactly true, but it is definitely very squishy! The ground is designed like a baseball field, which was very cute.



And the best part of all? The indoor bathrooms! Nice and clean, and a great "plus" for people who have kids with small bladders, or kids who are in various stages of potty training! There's a great picnic shelter too, so this is a place to keep in mind for playgroup get togethers and other events!

We're definitely adding this to our list of playgrounds to visit on a regular basis!

We will have to check this park out for sure! The kids love checking out new parks but I am running out of parks to take them to.

I know what you mean. New parks are worth hours of entertainment, but sometimes the same parks time after time just don't cut it anymore!
