Have you ever stumbled upon something and then had to tell everyone you know about how great it is? Piedmont Community Park has become that for me. I sing its praises to anyone who will listen, and so do my kids. This park has so many fantastic features (there is a zip. line. Need I say more?!) and my kids are begging to go back. Here’s everything you need to know before you visit this gem. If you’re looking for some other great parks around the OKC metro, check out the OKC Park Crawl!
We didn’t know much about Piedmont Community Park before we visited. I looked it up online and the pictures do not do it justice. This park is massive. There is one entrance that immediately splits off in two directions. To the right is the playground designed for 2-5 year olds. The playground for 5-12 year olds is to the left.
The younger kids’ playground includes a covered wagon, sand boxes, swings, and some really fun areas for pretend play.
The playground for the older kids has a modern version of a merry-go-round, several climbing areas, and the coolest zip line ever. There’s even a seated zip line that’s designed for ADA accessibility!
We’ll definitely go back in the warmer months to try out the splash pad!

What We Love
- There is a pavilion with picnic tables, providing much needed space for picnics and shade in an otherwise open area.
- The playground has one entrance/exit and is completely fenced. This is great for families with smaller children (or “runners”).
- Maintenance seems to be a high priority at this playground. Everything was in good working order and the playground was very clean.
- Did I mention there’s a zip line?
- Piedmont Community Park is a bit of a drive, depending on where you’re located in the OKC metro. Pack a snack or lunch and plan to stay a while.
- If you’re going with multiple kids, or kids of varying ages, it’s a good idea to go with another adult so you can cover more ground. The park is very large and because of the materials used in construction it’s difficult to see all the different areas your kids are playing.
