We are lucky enough to have some great parks in Destin, but “Morgan’s” (as everyone calls it), is high on our list of favorites.
The Children’s Park at Morgan Sports Center is located right next to Destin’s city hall, adjacent to Morgan Sports Park (city sports events take place at the fields here). There is plenty of parking, a water fountain, a pavilion area for lunch or picnics, and bathrooms are a short walk away at the ball fields.
My only complaint about Morgan’s is the lack of baby swings. Miles crawled all over every inch of the park on our recent visit, but I would have liked to have put him in a baby swing.
There are lots of different areas to the park and plenty of space to run around. Lots of slides, monkey bars, climbing ladders, tunnels, bridges, and more.
It’s a bit difficult for one momma to keep an eye on all three kiddos by herself at this park, FYI. Not impossible, but I definitely get a workout keeping up with everyone while we’re here. It covers a lot of area, but is fenced in all the way around.
I love that there is a big shaded area! It’s perfect for really hot days.
If you are looking for a park in Destin, be sure to check out Morgan’s. It’s centrally located and utilized by lots of residents. You can also have birthday parties at the pavilion- check with the city for details.
