Playing At The Park

Play structures at Red-Tailed Hawk Park

I discovered a new park in my area, just a short drive from our house. In a few years, we’ll all be able to ride our bikes there, it’s that close.


Red-tailed Hawk Park (located on Aurora Pkwy, between Arapahoe & Gartrell) offers
* two play structures
* two swing sets (one for small kiddos, one for big kids)
* a rock to conquor
* covered picnic tables, uncovered picnic tables & grills
* a bathroom
* A small spray park

The park is accessible by bike, which connects with the Piney Creek Trail. There are two small parking lots, one near the spray park, and one near the main playground. But there isn’t much of a walk between them.

We went to play today around 10:30am, and the summer sun made the slides a little hot. The spray park doesn’t turn the water on until 11am. Factor that in when you are making plans to go play.
