Dream Playground: A Kenosha Treasure Your Kids Will Love

Up for a dreamy day trip? Head 45 minutes south to Kenosha!

Located at Petzke Park, at the intersection of 31st Street and 14th Avenue in Kenosha, Dream Playground is not just any playground—it’s Kenosha’s first fully accessible playground, designed to bring children of all abilities together in one amazing space.

Spanning an impressive 15,000 square feet, Dream Playground was brought to life in 2015 thanks to the dedication and hard work of over 3,000 volunteers.

This labor of love has since become a cherished destination for families, offering a safe and engaging environment where children can explore and adults can relax, knowing the space is secure and well-equipped.


Dream Playground features two main areas tailored to different age groups.

The Tot Lot is perfect for the little ones under 5, providing a safe space to crawl, toddle, and have fun, while the area for older kids offers more challenging and thrilling play options.

The ground is covered with a smooth, rubber surface that ensures safe navigation, and a well-planned ramp system allows everyone to access all the fun features of the playground.

The best part? The entire area is encircled by engraved pickets and has only one entrance, making it easier for parents to keep an eye on their little adventurers.
