The Stanford West Playground is located on Clark Way, Palo Alto, CA. This park is a hidden gem tucked away across from the Stanford Shopping Center. This playground is designed for children 5-12 (however I think it would be great for 3 year olds as well) lots of climbing walls, ropes and a large tube slide! This place is perfect for a game of hot lava due to it’s stepping blocks around the playground. There is a well shaded area for parents to sit. This park is dog friendly but dogs must be leashed. There’s an area for fitness ages 14+. There are no bathrooms here.
