3 Reasons my Family Loves Maplecrest Park, Maplewood


  • Maplecrest Park is near to stores and eateries, so you can park and walk around the town of Maplewood.  Yet even with bordering the police station and being in a downtown area, it’s peaceful and quiet with lots of fields to run or rest in.


  • There’s a great skate park! It’s well maintained and good for kids of all abilities. While we were there, there were younger children with scooters, and more advanced skateboarders. It isn’t enclosed so kids can skate easily out of the area on the paved paths and back to the ramps.


  • The two playgrounds are next to each other and in the shade, so no reason to stay away on hot days! Benches are near the play areas so parents can relax while the little ones play. There’s even a picnic grove next to the play structures. One is for ages 2-5 and the other for older children, with lots of climbing and sliding.
