#56 Osage Park – 2121 W 31st St S.
Background: From the city’s website: The 20-acre park was acquired in 1957. Land and Water Conservation Funds provided by the Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks and the National Park Service, have been used to develop this park.
What we did: Another hot afternoon in Kansas, but that did not deter us from visiting this little gem in southwest Wichita.
The splash pad was the place to be, plenty of people beating the heat. There was also a birthday party under an awning at the rec center, which is huge, and it must have been a school at some point.
The playground was basic but nice. Plenty of shade too.
