Orchards Park in Allen has a surprisingly awesome playground, for sure one of the best playgrounds in Allen. This Allen playground offers much more than the typical small play structure and bank of swings you’d expect.

This Allen playground offers much more than your average neighborhood playground | Best playgrounds

The most striking feature of this Allen playground is a giant 3-story climbing structure with a giant spiral slide and another slide which shoots your kiddos through the playground fence and lands them on the other side – outside the playground. Of course, your kiddos will be thrilled with the idea of this slide that takes them “to another dimension”. Meanwhile, as the mother of younger children, I’m torn between finding it merely stressful on the one hand and absolutely terrifying on the other. Either way, you’re going to want to keep a close eye to make sure your little ones return from the other side of the fence.

Another cool feature at the playground at Orchards Park is a triple slide which slopes down an incline. Just keep an eye out here too, the top of this triple slide leads beyond the fence and into the park beyond.
