Family-Friendly Fun Awaits in Pleasant Prairie Parks
Kids need room to explore, run, dance, and otherwise be their silly selves. Fortunately, Pleasant Prairie has the perfect playgrounds and recreational spaces for entertaining your entire family. Three community parks — Ingram Park, Pleasant Prairie Park, and Prairie Springs Park — are among the most popular in Pleasant Prairie.
At nearly 31 acres, Ingram Park is a large community park with a walking trail, fishing pond, playground, and an arboretum dedicated to local Kenosha County Vietnam Veterans. During the wintry months, a sledding hill is a popular spot for dashing through the snow. Within Ingram Park is a fenced dog park, with separate sections for small and large dogs. Here you can allow your prized pup to run off-leash and socialize with other pooches. It's a delightful way to make sure your pet gets plenty of exercise. Pet owners are welcome to socialize as well!
Pleasant Prairie Park is 22 acres and has a playground with swings and slides galore, two tennis/pickleball courts, restroom facilities, and two parking areas. A disc golf course was established here in 2022, with impressive enhancements planned for 2023.
Prairie Springs Park, adjacent to the RecPlex and a massive 930 acres in size, has three playgrounds and its very own archery range. Visitors can enjoy kayaking, canoeing, paddleboarding, fishing in all seasons, and other sports on the waters of Lake Andrea. Enjoy the paved path around the lake or venture into the winding natural trails that take you through scenic woods and wetlands.
If you’re an avid jogger, biker, or just want a new view of the area, be sure to check out the Kenosha County Bike Trail. The southern segment of the trail begins on the south side of the City of Kenosha at 89th Street and continues through Pleasant Prairie to the Wisconsin/Illinois state line where it connects with Illinois’ Robert McClory Bike Path.
In addition to the community parks, scattered throughout the Village are several quaint neighborhood parks. If you’re a Village resident, or thinking about moving to Pleasant Prairie, be sure to check out the complete park listings to find one near you.
