This is a good place to bring the kids to play, but it's way overcrowded I think. They took down the castle, which was central in the playground. The duck pond is a good feature. My kids love feeding the ducks.

We were very disappointed at how run down it had become. In my opinion it s not safe for the kids. We worried about slivers and having something break. It s a shame it hasn t been kept up.

Kid Venture Playground is located at the corner of Camson road & Jim Ed Rice Parkway, and is part of the Anderson Sports and entertainment center. To the best of my knowledge, it is open all year. But I have included the web site link with general information and rules for your convenience. Besides the best playground in the upstate... More

Took our kids New Year's Day. A couple having a domestic dispute was there and the police had to be called. We didn't know if weapons were there because of screaming. Families were running all over the place and children were terrified. The structure was in bad shape. The "tower" area had apparent writing and trash was throughout. I have... More

Went here with a friend... our kids 1, 3, 6, and 7 LOVED this park! The castle and other play ground equipment was great. They also loved running around the soccer field. We look forward to walking around the pretty lake in a future visit

Although it appears some cosmetic touches have been made to this once terrific playground, I can't recommend bringing small children. Fresh mulch has been added, ladder repaired and a broken tire swing removed, but the swings are covered in mold, the nearby table was filthy & flies so bad we couldn't eat our sandwiches. Instead of repairing gaps in the... More

Not so sure this was for us to take our grandchildren. I was worried they could get out and me not see them. We tried to constantly keep up with the two of them but there were too many places they could hide ;while one was looking inside one was trying to keep a look in case they came outside.... More

What was once a wonderful place for local kids to play is becoming a hazard. On our last visit we saw holes in the fence where the Ducks can enter the playground; a broken tire swing and missing pieces from their obstacle course. I am afraid that a child will be hurt if the condition is not remedied. Wake up... More
