Best Playground

Gene C. Reid Park

Those plastic twisty slides may be a little warm in the summer months—but we raise our kids here in Tucson to be super-tough, right? Reid Park, conveniently located in midtown, has a little bit of everything, and is sure to satisfy kids of all ages, no matter their tastes in playground equipment. Swinging, climbing, dangling and sliding are all part of the fun, and those soft wood chips—cushioning the kiddos when gravity gets the best of them—can help parents breathe a sigh of relief. The ramadas make family outings a breeze, giving parents a comfortable place to view the cringe-worthy antics that make playground visits memorable.
