Attraction: Veterans Memorial Park Playground West
Address:1985 W 7800 S, West Jordan, UT 84088
Close to: Across the street (a quiet park street) from the West Jordan Library and a short drive to a number of fast food establishments.
This playground is insanely cool! We found it quite by accident when we were looking for the West Jordan Library. This little playground isn’t the only one in the Veterans Memorial Park but if you drive around to the library you will see this one across the street and it definitely beats out any competing play structures.
It’s themed to look like an Old West town but there’s also a ton of little Utah history nods hidden throughout. Most importantly, the actual structure is a really interesting mix of safe features and unusual places for the kids to duck and hide. It’s large and there’s not always a good eyeline for keeping an eye on the kids (noticeable if you’re an anxious mom like I am) but the whole thing is fenced with only two entrances (one in the front, one in the back) so if you don’t mind giving the kids a little freedom you can park yourself and relax.
