There's never a bad time to visit a playground...and even a quick visit is sure to turn any frowns upside down. Mansfield has nine parks with different playgrounds, each with unique structures and features to accommodate all ages and interests. Please keep in mind playground age designations are for safety and developmental designations and should be followed when possible.

The playground at Julian Feild has play space for both preschool and older kids, with a large swing set that includes one of our popular generational swings, where an adult and baby or toddler can swing together, facing each other.
McClendon Park West is a quiet park surrounded by thick trees that give nice shade over both the playgrounds, one for each age group, and swings. McClendon also has a lighted basketball court and softball field for other play opportunities.
Chandler Park was renovated in late 2017, giving it the newest playground structures in Mansfield. The large 5-12Y space has ropes, rock climbing and other unique structures. In addition to the preschool playground, Chandler also has a long set of swings and a large disc swing. Both playgrounds are adjacent to Mansfield's only splash pad, open Memorial Day through Labor Day.
Katherine Rose has Mansfield's largest playground, located in the heart of the pecan tress for great year-round shade. The single playground is accesible and designed for all ages. Rose has a series of swings, including a classic tire swing and a generational swing for adults and little ones to swing together.
Town Park has two separate playgrounds for older and younger kids, divided by a few small steps for good visibility but still ample room to play. In addition to the swings, Town also features a large basketball court and sand volleyball court. Town is connected to Katherine Rose Park via the Walnut Creek Linear Trail, with just a short walk through a wooded nature trail to get to even more fun.
Killian Park is a fun neighborhood park tucked away near a peaceful pond. It has a great playground for younger kids and swings, but most notably it is home to a unique rope pyramid that offers hours of climbing fun.
Barg Park is another small neighborhood park that includes a large pond with walking trail and lots of trees. The playground is designed primarily for younger children and added two swings in 2017, after the department received an impassioned plea from a tiny neighbor.
Mills Park currently has the only playground east of the 360 Tollway, nestled in a quiet neighborhood and surrounded by trees and a walking loop. The playground has two separate playgrounds for both age groups with a wide space between them for plenty of running and free play, as well as three swings.
Piedmont Park is located in the Woodland Estates neighborhood on the opposite side of the pond from Killian Park. It has a much larger playground structure designed for older children and monkey bars, as well as covered pavilions and the walking path along the pond.
