Glacier Highlands Park Description

Glacier Highlands Park can appeal to kids in a wide range of ages.

Even as a teen, my daughter is fascinated by the mobius strip climbers.

Tots will love playing in the sandbox. There are plenty of sand toys left for park visitors to enjoy. Or take a spin on the merry go round.

Glacier Highlands Park - Sandbox & Merry Go Round

While none of the slides are super low to the ground, none of them are very high. It is better suited for preschoolers and early elementary than tweens. There are monkey bars for older kids to climb across.
