KidSpace Park | Shawnee, OK

Did you hear? Only 30 minutes from Oklahoma City, the city of Shawnee has officially opened their KidSpace Park and it’s ready for play! If you’ve been following along for the last few years, you know Shawnee has been hard at work renovating this incredible 7.6 acre park. 

Surrounded by miles of trails, this park has two play grounds with slides and climbing structures – and a section for kids ages 2-5 and another for ages 5-12 – a ninja course, a basketball court, two pickle ball courts, and plenty of shaded areas for parents! And we particularly love the outdoor yard games like a giant game of checkers.
