Summer Fun at Scheid Park

In summer, families will enjoy the playground equipment, which was completely overhauled in the spring of 2019. The new equipment offers more climbing and balancing opportunities for children. According to its designer, Flagship Play:

"This design features the hemisphere climber, blender spinner, saddle spinner, rock climbing wall, slides, swings, rooftop for shade and much more!"

The design is considered "nature-based," which might be a stretch, but you can decide for yourself. See a photo of the new playground at the designer's website.

There is also space for a variety of sports, including a basketball court, two lighted tennis courts, softball and baseball fields, and a soccer field in the fall. Families can also find game squares.

Scheid is the home of Golden Valley's Water Days, when the public is invited to play water-related games including three water slides, as well as music, puppets and refreshments. The park also participates in the puppet wagon, along with several other Golden Valley parks.
