Playground in Aztec, NM

I love it when you are traveling, everybody is getting hungrier by the minute, and you frantically search for a good place to stop and eat…and then what looked like a nondescript picnic area on a map turns out to be this:


The coolest playground in an unlikely area. We found this at the Riverside State Park in Aztec, New Mexico. It sits right on the river Animas. A local told me that they plan to build trails to connect Aztec, Farmington, and Bloomfield. If you are driving from Albuquerque to Durango you want to stop here.

Cool playgrounds are essential for successful travel with kids in my opion. As I find other interesting structures I will post them. If you have a favorite playground I would love to feature them here. You can contact me at

Have a lovely day,
