Camino A Lago Park in Peoria offers a playground and splash pad, next to a great library as well! This combo can make for a great outing.
This splash pad is just down from the library. What a great way to make a day out of it and head over to the splash pad to get out wiggles after reading. There were 3 spray poles and a few fountains spraying up. The day we visited the water was not flowing much, but I hear it’s usually great. Splash pads are open seasonally from April 15 through October 15. Hours are 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.
This wood chip playground was great for all ages, as well as shaded! There’s a small climbing structure for little kids. I personally love when the playground incorporates the alphabet and numbers, I can point them out to the kids and get in a little preschool practice. Best part was the little table, the kids had a blast sitting on the chairs and making food out of the wood chips.
The big kid’s playground has a slide, spider web for climbing, monkey bars for playing, and even a hammock for swinging. There are 2 big kid swings and 2 toddler swings, however, they are not shaded.
Hereis an interactive map of parks in the city of Peoria.
There is a large and shaded parking lot from the library all the way down to the splash pad making it easy to park and walk to all the locations in this area.
