We have visited here several times. My kids love the splash pad and the huge castle playground. I would highly recommend it to anyone living in southern IL area. Bring a towel and a picnic lunch to enjoy the summer sunshine. There are lots of kid-friendly restaurants and shopping in nearby Fairview Heights.
This park is tucked away in the St. Louis suburb of Swansea, IL. It is a great park if you are in the area, but I wouldn't go out of my way just to visit it. There are a few picnic tables available if you'd like to have lunch there. On hot summer days, there is a splash pad were the kiddos can cool off. Swimsuits are best and bring a towel. The playground has a nice size play area for toddlers- 5. The big kid side is much larger and is fashioned into a castle that has many slides and things to climb.
