Large Playground at Doko Meadows 

The playground at Doko Meadows Park has all your kids will need and more! Complete with two separate play areas – one for children 5 and under and the other for 5 and up. The toddler area includes two small slides as well as climbing structures to get up and down. The larger playscape is made up of 3 large slides, monkey bars, and balancing equipment. 

Recent Park Upgrades

Recent additions to the park include a full shade covering and new artificial turf ground covering. That’s right, the wood chips are gone! We aren’t sure if we’re more excited about the upgraded ground or the fact that there is now PLENTY of shade, but hey, we all love new updates, right?!

Take a Walk Along the Trails 

At Doko Meadows you will find walking trails! The majority of the trails are shaded and paved, making pushing a stroller or allowing your kiddos to ride their bikes easy. Along the trail and behind the main playground you will have a beautiful view of the pond and Doko Manor.  The nature trail at Doko Meadows is a 1-mile out and back trail, and is considered an easy trail.

You Can Go Fishing at Doko Meadows Park   

Have any fishing enthusiasts in the family? There is a small pond at Doko Meadows and the good news is, fishing is allowed! A dock sits out into the water where several people with young children learning how to bait their hooks can usually be found.

No fishing pole? No problem! My son enjoyed looking at the wildlife from the dock. We fed the ducks swimming by and spotted several turtles poking their heads up.  

What can you feed ducks? Bread actually isn’t good for ducks. Check out some alternatives to safely feed ducks. They are just as fun and the ducks’ will be healthier for it!
