Ann Arbor’s Las Vegas Park Profile
Las Vegas Park is a small neighborhood park in the Dicken neighborhood. It has a play structure, sandbox, basketball, and more.
My teen loves American Ninja Warrior and the battering ram you can edge down the bar reminded us both of one of the obstacles. She immediately had to give it a try.
As a neighborhood park, Las Vegas Park has a small play structure. It does have 3 slides, but they are not very high.
The play structure has monkey bar handles for kids to go across. My daughter is usually instantly drawn to the monkey bars. But at Las Vegas Park, she was too preoccupied with the battering ram to give these a try.
One thing that I love about the sandboxes at Ann Arbor Parks is their assortment of toys . Check out the assortment of trucks and tractors in the Las Vegas Park sandbox.
Beyond the playground, Las Vegas Park has wide open space with a softball backstop and plenty of room to run. It also has a half-basketball court.
While Las Vegas Park does not have walking trails, its path is connected to the sidewalks on both Las Vegas Dr and Granada.
