Ainsworth Park Playground
The playground is small with standard equipment. It has a nice direct sight-line from an open picnic shelter a few feet away. Parents have the option of sitting in the shady shelter or on one of the benches surrounding the playground, which may or may not be shaded depending on time of day.
Sledding at Ainsworth Park
This is one of the parks that St. Louis Park recommends for sledding in the snowy months. It is not a lighted hill. For more sledding hills, see our Twin Cities Sledding Hills Guide.
