Ankeny Miracle Park

Review №1

This park is amazing! It has something for everyone! From just walking to even us old folk :-) This park was built for the ability to handle children with special needs and has the space and accessibility to do so. Todays visit was just my youngest daughter and I but we use this park constantly for all three of the kids. Ankeny would not be what it is today without the Miracle Park.

My kids love this park and its many fun things!!

Review №3

Loved it was easy to chase my 18 month old there up on the play ground equipment. And big enough that you can stay a safe distance from others and nice picnic areas we brought our lunch and ate there.

Review №4

Great place for the family to go to play.

Review №5

It was a child wonder and 3 hours of adult conversation while the kids played on and on. Well kept too.

Review №6

Wonderful place to take the kids and let them loose. And my daughter loved feeding the ducks.

Review №7

What a great place for kids. It has a couple separate play areas. One for the older kids and one for the little toddlers. For our experience he loves it here. Always kids around. Bathrooms are clean, soft rubber ground. All around nice place. I like all the seating and bench areas if you are going to have a party here. Looks like they have a couple of concession stands looks like if you contact the city you could use a building for a party. I

This park is one of the biggest I have been to in the Des Moines area. This is a fun park. There are many swings to use. There is a baseball field right next to it too. They have tables in the shade to sit down. They have basketball hoops and a couple other playgrounds on the other side of the fence.

Review №12

Easily accessible and inclusive playground. Everybody played nice while we were there and there is lots of safe equipment.

My 7 year old loves this park the most out of all the parks in ankeny. Lose one star for not keeping a bathroom open though

Review №15

Great place to bring your kids of a summer day, lots of unique playground equipment for them to entertain themselves on for hours.

Review №16

Its just an awesome place for all kids. A great playground and baseball field. Last night I watched a bunch of my special needs friends play baseball. It was so much fun!

Review №17

This place was freaking awesome. A friend and I went after getting some food and wanted to do some pokemon go playing, we ended up only doing MAYBE 4 minutes of walking until we decided it was time to play on the playground for hours. We are both over 20 years old, but this was an awesome night.

Review №18

Amazing park with massive play areas for all childrens age ranges. Almost feels like they could charge to play there. A great hidden gem for free!!

Review №19

This place is huge and very clean. Great for the kids and it helps that Ankeny kids are respectful and kind to other kids and adults. Great community to be a part of.

One of of our favorite places to play. I love that the park is well maintained and the concession stands are available for most of our trips.

Very nice park for the kids especially for those with handicaps. But no shade on the playground. Parking was ok but one had to walk quit a little distance to get to the sheltered picnic area.

This park is always so much fun. The kids have enough choices to keep them active for a long time.

Review №25

Great play ground for kids of all ages. A little lacking in shaded seating

Review №26

Love it! All 3 kids can be amused 2, 5, and 7 year olds. It is so big it can be hard to keep track of them all though. I always go with extra adults!

Review №27

When it comes to looking for a wine and spirits, they have it. Excellent selection and great value depending on what youre looking for. Go to their website beforehand and look up what exactly you want. There it will give you ratings and prices.

Review №28

This park is amazing. Best playground I’ve seen in a public park. Designed to be fun for kids of all abilities. There have been a few times kids were not being supervised well enough, but it’s rare.

This is the best park in ankeny by far. I took my nephews here and i also work for a daycare and we would take several field trips here during the summer. All the kids love it and it’s easy for all of our kids to play on. If you’re in the area i would definitely check out this park!!!

Excellent park for the whole family.

Review №50

Literally THE best park we have ever been to. Handicap accessible with 2 different play sets, one more for toddlers and one for older kids. Tons of slides and climbing areas, a big boat you can rock in, and lots of swings including a hammock swing. Soft rubber floor covering whole play area. Bathrooms near by, baseball fields, even concessions if theres a ball game going on. During the summers you can also access the schools playground right next door, otherwise its locked up facing the park side. Worth the drive up to Ankeny to visit this park, its AWESOME!

Review №52

Very nice place. Lots of stuff for the kids to play on, very safe soft rubberized ground, picnic areas. Great place for the kids.

Review №53

It was such a fun and engaging park, lots to do especially if you have older children. There is an area for toddlers too but does cater more for older kids. I took my 2.5 year old and he had a blast....I did too!

Review №54

It is a great place for kids to play and to get to know people in the neighborhood. It is designed for accessibility in mind for children so children can be more diversified and accepting of children who are different. It is a very safe place to be.

Review №55

One of my kids favorite parks

Review №56

This park is! The playground itself is huge. I have been told it was designed to accommodate any age or special/physical needs (and I believe it). It has a shelter with picnic tables. There are bathrooms. The playground equipment is big and spread out so keep a close eye on the kiddos. I lost sight of my 4 and 1 year old a few times. The only thing missing is a slash pad.

Review №57

Good for kids and teens

Review №58

Its a great place to go with the kids and have fun. Though they do need to make sure all restrooms are unlocked. June 26th around 7:30, 8pm the men and womens restrooms were locked. Thankfully the family restroom was still open.

Beautiful park that has fishing, tennis, volleyball, baseball, and a huge play ground.Handicap accessible swings and ramps, sensatory (bumpy) slides, lots of musical noise makers.Monkey bars that are lower to the ground so younger kids can practice without being scared of a long fall.Swings that are lower to the ground. The kids can get up on them without assiasance.
