Closing Review: Birthbrite noted Kiwanis Park was their favorite kid-friendly destination, so we knew we had to visit to check it out! We love the paved walking path, which is perfect for bikes, scooters, or toddlers on the go, and the newer equipment provides lots of opportunities for climbing and playing. Kiwanis Park is the perfect destination for a quick stop to play or an all-day adventure!
