This was the last stop on our official tour of Johnson County parks, although I hope to add a few more from our own family outings in the future. Full disclosure: my child was a hot mess this morning. Cranky and uncooperative so we didn’t get to spend as much time at the park as I would have liked and my pictures are not fantastic, however you’ll get the gist!

What we love about Electric Park: The shaded play structure is awesome! It was HOT this morning but the shade made this part of the playground enjoyable. We all eventually migrated over there to play in the shade. Bonus: the playground equipment did not bake in the sun! This is a newer playground and another one designed by Landscape Structures. There is a large covered play area, a robe climbing structure, four swings, and a smaller play structure for younger children, also under a canopy. My daughter loved the little monkey bars on the smaller structure, just her size! There is a shelter with several picnic tables here as well as bathrooms nearby.
Other things to know about Electric Park:
– there is a huge community garden right next to it, we didn’t get a chance to go check it out but it would be fun to explore.
– this park is right off of 435 and 95th street. Very accessible to eastern Johnson County.
– also available at this park are volleyball, basketball, and horseshoes and there is a large open field great for ultimate frisbee (do people still play that?) or soccer.
