Playground Fun for Little Ones at Charles E. Lakin Park
I have to be honest, I’m not really sure the name of this park, but it sits behind the Charles E. Lakin Human Services Campus off 16th and Avenue G. I searched the Council Bluffs Park Directory and it doesn’t seem to be listed, so for now I’m calling it the Charles E. Lakin Park until I find out otherwise. Either way, the name doesn’t matter because there is lots of fun to be had at this park in Council Bluffs!
This Council Bluffs Park has a clay base instead of rocks, along with two different sections to play in. You’ll find a big jungle gym with slides, monkey bars, a bridge, and all the fun stuff jungle gyms have.
The money bars are the newer circular style we’ve been seeing. My husband thinks it’s to keep kids from climbing on top of them, and I think it’s for saving space. There is also a little rock climbing wall that was a favorite of my twins.
