Summer 2020 Updates!
Pierce Park got a very exciting refresh and is open to the public on June 17, 2020! The new modern playground includes a very bouncy rubber surface, a spider web style climber, a very cool merry go-round type feature with climbing areas on it, traditional swings, a fun surfboad swing, and a round saucer swing. The main playstructure has money bars and a tall twisty slide. The real star though is a zipline that runs the whole length of the park! There’s a platform to get a bit of a running start and it is super fast. This remodeled park is great for older kids and we’re so excited that it is a part of our community!
Pierce Park is one of the large and charming parks that Appleton has to offer. It has walking paths, tennis courts, frisbee golf, basketball courts, and a wonderful playground area. Pierce also has an outdoor stage where the City Band performs concerts once a week during the summer. We have been to a couple of the concerts, and it is a lot of fun. You can enjoy the talented performers while your kids enjoy the playground!
The playground is wonderful. There are a lot of slides, monkey bars, a fireman pole, and climbing equipment. There’s also a sand area and swings. I like that it has areas for different age groups, so the big kids can be a little separate from the younger children. There is mulch and grass ground.
Pierce has bathrooms, a drinking fountain, Pokestops, and Pokegyms.
