Rocket Ship Park

There's an old playground that the kids love to visit when we're in Okoboji.  It's surrounded by a moat and you have to enter by a little bridge.  The playground is almost exactly the same as it was when I played there as a kid.  We simply call it the "Rocket Ship Park" because the central feature is a huge rocket ship slide.  It can't possibly meet modern safety standards, which is probably what makes it so fun.


Cousin Ethan climbed up the slide and ran down.



Ding, ding!  All aboard the CB Express.  I think this train used to actually run on a track around the park, but for as long as I can remember, it's just been parked.  No matter; the kids love it anyway.

The little kid swings are still fun for the big kids.
