Dennis the Menace Park

Dennis the Menace Park

Did you know that almost 100 acres of Downey are devoted to 11 area parks? At Downey Daily, we tend to focus on Furman Park (because it's close) and Wilderness Park (because it's pretty). Today, I decided to visit the rest of the parks over the course of the next few weeks.

This is Dennis the Menace Park, hidden in a cul-de-sac in north Downey. Dennis the Menace is a comic strip character originally from the 1950s, "a precocious but lovable, freckle-faced five-and-a-half-year-old boy with a famous blond cowlick and a penchant for mischief." (Wikipedia) The park is the perfect place for present-day menaces to have some fun. For a medium-sized park, it has a very large kid's playground, with lots of slides, swings, and things to be climbed.

What kid can resist the temptation to climb the wrong way up a slide? These two young girls in the main picture couldn't!
