Trains, Dinosaurs, Music, Oh My! | Thunder Junction All Abilities Park

You guys!!!!! If you haven't been to St. George recently, and there are plans to visit in the future, you simply MUST put the Thunder Junction All Abilities Park on your bucket list of things to do while there. Hands down, this is one of THE BEST public parks we've have ever taken our kids to. It's probably one of the best free public parks in Utah.

Camille and I actually went separately and unknowingly wanted to both post about this amazing park. Camille went in November, while I went right after Christmas.

I'd heard about this park, mainly because they had a train that you could ride! (Sadly, the train wasn't running in December, but Camille and her kids were able to in November.)

Even though we didn't get to ride the train, the kids hardly noticed.

There was so much to ride, explore and just run around in the St. George sun.

I'm not even quite sure what to call half of the toys, some I'd never seen before, like this giant chair that spun in circles.

We spent a lot of time spinning. The kids loved throwing their hands up in the air. It was also awesome to have a 10 year old to a 18 month old playing in the same toy safely.

I've only seen these in the last few years, but I've noticed they've started covering parks, so the toys don't get so hot. The things they do for kids now.

This chair was a popular one too. A chair zipline I guess we'll call it.

There is also an amazing splash pad! It wasn't on in December, but in November it still was, as you'll see in Camille's photos.

My kids loved running through the caves even without the water running. Aiko even decided to do some sun bathing.

On the East side of the park there is a musical section. Kids can bang on all sorts of tubes and pipes to make music.

Trains, dinosaurs, slides, swings, oh my! This park really had everything.

This is a park meant for kids of all ages and all abilities (even I wanted to play on the equipment).

 It is universally accessible for strollers, wheelchairs, etc.

There is something for everyone at this park - playground equipment for all ages (including an area for toddlers and younger children), ziplines, a splash pad, and pavilion with picnic tables.

When I visited with my children, my daughter just happened to have a broken leg and limped around the park with no trouble at all.

Camille said the train ride was awesome for $1! (Photo below from Thunder Junction All Abilities website.)

I mean this train does look amazing.

Since we visited mid-November/December, I can't wait to return in the warmer months to try out the splash pad and ride the train.

So if you are in St. George and looking for a few minutes to let the kids run wild, head over to Thunder Junction All Abilities Park!
