Dobson Ranch Park in Mesa

Dobson Ranch Park in Mesa is a 10,000 square foot playground that gives children of all abilities the chance to play. The park is conveniently located and absolutely gorgeous with the duck lake. We had lots of fun playing here!


Special features in this 10,000 square foot playground include a multi-level play experience with upper and lower play structure with connecting ramps. There are toddler expression swings where parents/care givers can swing with toddlers too. Other fun areas include: a sandbox table, musical instruments, 50 foot zip line with a support seat, a saddle spinner, slides, and lots of opportunities for climbing! The entire area is covered by two sun shades. The flooring is a mix of rubber and wood chips, a nice change from other playgrounds.

This is a very large playground and I would not recommend going with kids that are runners. It is right off a major road and there is a lake nearby. The playground also has blind spots and one kid could easily run off without you seeing. My two year olds had fun and played on everything. However I don’t think we will return until they are at least 4 or 5.


There are shaded picnic facilities available. Note that there are no ramadas directly connected to the playground area. Ramadas are available for reservations by calling at least 24 hours in advance. For more information click here.
