Indian School Park in Scottsdale is a great option for the kiddos! Have you driven down Hayden between Indian School and Camelback and noticed all the greenery and play options? Long walks and rides up and down the Scottsdale greenbelt were a favorite in our household even before kids.


Located just north of Indian School off the parking lot there is a great playground for kids of all ages. The little kids playground is just big enough for adults who want to climb with their kids. It also has cute details like a wheel for driving and rock wall for new climbers.

Big kids can climb to their hearts content in this woodland themed playground. There are lots of slides and even a spinner for spinning till you can’t see straight! Rock walls, stairs and steps for climbing with wood chips below in case you slip.

Playing with friends? The teeter totter is perfect.

Love to swing? There are two sets of swings, one for toddlers and one for bug kids.

Sports lovers will love this facility. If you have multiple kids who love different sports, you can bring them to this park and everyone can play their favorite game. We love bringing some balls and playing on the different fields, and the bags to play corn hole is another popular activity with us.


There are 6 reservable ramadas. They are scattered throughout the park, depending on what activity you are booking for. Information can be found here.


The Youth & Family Services building on the south end of the park is a fun place to stop by and learn a little bit about parks in a floodway. The indoor air conditioned office is also a great place to stop by and cool off or ask a question.

The Indian School Park Tennis Center provides recreations programs including adult tennis leagues, cardio tennis, group lessons, private lessons, ball machine rentals, drop in tennis play and more. The junior tennis program (ages 5-12) utilizes the USTA’s Net Generation curriculum.
