Scheid Park in Golden Valley is almost 10 acres and offers families amenities including playground equipment, a four-square court, walking paths, sports fields and winter recreation. There is off-street parking available.
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.
Winter Fun at Scheid Park
During the winter months, this park's hilly terrain is ideal for sledding. However, sledding is only allowed in designated areas. The outdoor skating rink is maintained daily on weekdays. There is a supervised warming shelter at this location.
