Warrior Park in Waukee, Iowa is pretty small, but has some unique features for the west side that I think make it worth a visit! This park is near the Waukee Public Works building, which hosts a free indoor play gym Mondays & Wednesdays (it’s called tot lot) and makes for a great side trip after attending.

You can see more specific details on the Warrior Park page or check out its location on the interactive map.

There are a few baseball diamonds nearby (as well as a cemetary, which we obviously didn’t play at) that also provide entertainment for running, dragging, and exploring.

If you find yourself out on the west side, this is a great little park to spend some time at!
