NEW! KaBOOM! Playground Grand Opening!
10 a.m. to 12 p.m., Saturday, Dec. 20

KaBoom! playgroundIf you build it, they will come! The City of Glendale and the Arizona Coyotes Foundation proudly host the community unveiling of the new KaBOOM! playground at Bonsall Park North to the public. “We hope by building this playground at the Bonsall Park kids will find plenty of fun, whether they choose the slide, climber, tire swing, spinner or any of the other implements built into this active play system. We also hope with the revitalization of the amenities at the park through this program the community will use this space to connect,” Glendale Parks Manager, Paul King said.

The Arizona Coyotes Foundation and Glendale’s Parks, Recreation and Neighborhood Services Division teamed up with KaBOOM! to design and build the Power Play Playground. The Power Play design features a tire swing, rock wall climbing area, slide, monkey bars and several other fun features.

The playground was built in one day with the help of nearly 200 volunteers. The Arizona Coyotes Foundation provided a $100,000 grant to the project. The grant also provided revitalization projects to the hockey rink, racquetball courts and ramada areas.


This community park, also referred to as "Chicken Park" by longtime Valley residents, is split by Bethany Home Road. The park is 17 acres total with 10 acres on the north side of Bethany Home Road and 7 acres on the south side.

The south side of the park features an urban lake with ducks and an anglers' plaza. The north side features an F-100D Super Sabre Air Force Jet display.

  • Two lighted basketball courts
