Park Series: Pioneer Park

Park Series Pioneer Park

Stillwater, MN

What to expect?

  • Wood chip footing under playground equipment, surrounded by brick paths and grass
  • Free street parking
  • Playground is closed October 15 – April 15
  • Bathrooms inside building next to playgrounds
  • Older equipment but some are unique, like the turning crank that slowly moves the “boat across the sea”
  • Two baby swings and regular swings
  • Toddler area with toy house, smaller slides and little climbing structure
  • Big kid area with slides and monkey bars and ropes and plenty of climbing objects
  • Toddler and big kid area are separated by a large pergola with benches
  • Tons of picnic tables and a large shaded shelter
  • A gorgeous view of the river and the city
  • Sometimes horse drawn carriages drive by the park – our daughter thought that was awesome!
  • TIP: Stillwater is AWESOME – Candy stores, pizza shops, wine bars, and Teddy Bear Park just down the road. This park is far less busy than Teddy Bear, but they are both worth a stop.

What to bring?

  • Large grassy areas would be fun for a picnic or a game of catch
  • Binoculars to take in the beautiful view
  • Your walking shoes because you will want to head into town and play around for a bit
  • There’s a great bike path (Brown’s Creek State Trail) that runs along the river if you want to bring your bikes.
  • Your imagination! Wooden parks always spark creativity in my kids for some reason. Have fun!
