Seth Grubbs gives his sister, Amellia, a push on one of the swings the Niceville Childrens Park.

For almost 20 years, the city’s Children’s Park has been a hidden gem for families looking for a place to entertain their kids for hours on end. Tucked in a walled and gated area near City Hall, the park offers a safe and unique place for kids to play.

Park it here:

Kids 12 and under can clamber over a wide variety of playground equipment. Even when the park draws crowds there is plenty of space to play. When it’s open, the Spray Park offers a place to cool off with water splashing down, up and around from various colorfully-themed pipes. Pack a picnic and enjoy the day at one of over a dozen covered picnic tables scattered through the park.

Be a good sport:

No soccer or footballs are allowed, but kids can get a workout running between the play areas. Parents might even burn a few calories tagging behind them.

Wanna Play?

The park features no less than six plastic jungle gyms, 10 slides and a rock-climbing wall.

Tip:

Bring some water for hot days, and don’t forget a towel!

Checklist:

Bathrooms: One indoor bathroom.

Water fountains: yes

Benches: yes
