Sladden Park – Cheshire Ave.

Sladden park is nestled right between the Willamette, I-105, and the railroad.  If you want to park by the playground, you’ll actually want to go down Adams. Here is a map.

This park has plentiful shade.  It has many very tall pine trees, reminiscent of Emerald park.  A lot of the trees have little seed pouches and things falling off them, that some of the kids complained had gotten stuff in their feet.  It’s a sandy park that’s a bit overgrown, so maybe not the best if your kids loves being barefoot.  But very pretty, just the same.

The play area stayed pretty shady, in fact, with the wind it was almost a bit chilly.

An old wading pool made a fun place for the kids to run around.  Hopefully they’ll rehabilitate it someday and turn it into a little water fun park.

The bathrooms looked nice from what we could see, but unfortunately they are closed ’til October!

Lots of field space to explore, picnic areas, and even frisbee golf!

Very sweet little park, I just love trees.  I wish they would weed the sand area, if they did that, it would be much better.

  1. Thank you for the feedback 🙂 I tried making the pictures a little bigger on this next post, but the resolution is pretty low. So, I’ll have to figure that one out. In the meantime, if you click on a photo it will bring up a bigger version of the image. I can’t say I really take the time to make perfect photos for this blog, maybe I should! 😛
