Saint Anthony Central Park sits on the city's municipal complex and shares a block with the fire department, city water tower, community center and the high school (which houses the community pool). There is a veterans memorial just off of Silver Lake Road. Water Tower Park also occupies this block.
Playground and Splash Pad
Although you cannot see either from the street, this park has a good sized playground and a splash pad.
The splash pad is a little scary. It is one large concrete area with a tall sprinkler in the center. While most splash pads are on concrete, the room to run makes me nervous. Wet concrete + room to run + a lot of kids = scary for parents but fun for kids. The splash pad usually opens in late May and closes in early September.
Saint Anthony Skate Park
The park is also home to a skateboard park and sports fields and courts. The skate park is closer to Water Tower Playground on the south side of the park than Central Park's playground and splash pad.
