Sunrise Optimist Park boasts a simple playground and a nice walking trail surrounding the green, tree-filled lawn. Located at 4498 West 20th Street (down the street from Cibola High School), the playground is on a busy road so watch the little ones closely! Click here for a map.
The walking trail has fitness stations, which of course are intended for adults, but my kids love trying out the balance beam and hanging from the pull-up bars. After a lap or two around the park, it’s off to the playground area. There are two baby swings which are always in demand!
The playground is not covered but there are some nice trees for shade, and there is a gazebo with picnic tables. This park is often frequented by the Cibola teenagers after school, but it’s a great park for little ones earlier in the day.
