Stacy Park, the first stop on the Werner Family Park Tour 2016, was a big hit! Located across from the Old Bonhomme Elementary School, this 35 acre park has everything, starting with a large parking lot that is close to all amenities.

This park features two playgrounds; one for older children, 5+ (though Clayton, my 3.5 yr old was more than competent to play on this one) and a second playground for toddlers.

The larger playground is handicap accessible, and features a 360 degree open spiral slide, a curved sectional slide and a triple chute slide. (This playground is very similar to the larger playground at Des Peres Park)

There is also a spring rider, side to side saucer glider (see the picture below…Clayton didn’t really enjoy this swing very much due to the placement of the bar), a fireman’s pole, a bridge, and multiple activities scattered around the playground.

Off to one side, there is a tower with four climbing walls and two fireman’s poles.  Clayton really wanted to climb up to the top, but then was scared to come down the fireman’s pole. The platform is really tall for someone who is 5’5″…I eventually got him down by having him step on my hand and then lowering him down.  Needless to say, he didn’t go back up to the top.

Next to the climber is a swing set featuring both bucket and traditional belt swings and a large porch swing. The surfaces in these areas are rubber flooring, wood chips and grass/dirt.

On the other side of the playground, there is another rock climber and a fenced in tot area.

The fenced in tot playground is fenced all the way around with the exception of an opening the size of a standard double gate.  **Watch out for those runners** This playground features a tube slide, a small curved sectional slide, a small straight slide, a ladder, stairs, a small cargo climbing net, a bridge and a plastic climber.

The fenced area also includes an alligator dual spring rider (the boys enjoyed riding this one together), a horse see saw (I could barely pry the 16 month old’s fingers off of this one) and a swing set with two bucket and two belt swings.  There is a large porch swing, multiple park benches and some shaded areas.  The surfaces in this area include wood chips, rubber flooring and grass.

All in all, the Werner boys gave this park a five star rating! They want to know when we can go back!
