Camden playground, one of the first handicap accessible playgrounds in the country is undergoing a complete renovation. All equipment was torn out and all new is being installed. The work is being completed mostly by volunteers and paid for with donations. This playground when finished will be one of the finest in the midwest for all ages and abilities. Can't... More

Grandma can we go to the park? Sure...which one? CAMDEN!!! Part of Palmer Park, Camden is a special small fortress appearing play area for little kids. Baby swings, regular swings, tube slides, sand diggers and playhouse all close to fenced in wading pool and a zip line within short walking distance. Mature trees give shade and there are several benches... More

There is a lot of stuff to do in this park and you could spend all day here. We went for the playground which was quite extensive and fun. There are lots of swings and places to jump off of. There is a digging area with tools for kids to do sand castles too. To top it off, there is... More

This is a fun area for kids of all ages to play in and has a wading pool nearby. Unfortunately, it looks like they are charging for that area now, but my son is older, so we don't visit that pool any longer. My opinion is that, wading pools should remain "Free of Charge" for the younger children to enjoy!... More

A great playground for getting out the wiggles! So much for kids to do. The play structure is massive. Huge bonus that it's handicapped accessible. Our son loves going here when we visit. The playground is adjacent to the Palmer Park wading pool, so in the summer you get double the fun! Note, this park is really a playground within... More

This is a great park. I believe this park and Peace Park are the two best parks in Janesville. I like Camden a bit better since it is located in trees and has lots of shade. We can play here and not have to load up on the sun screen which is nice. So many neat areas within the park... More

The grandkids love coming here whenever they visit! Camden playground is a large structure with unlimited fun for kids. Set in a beautiful park, the playground area offers numerous challenges and fun for all ages of children. Benches for mom and dad but you will find yourself "playing" along with the kids!

This is a great park. It is also handicap accessible. There are many things for the kids to do here. There are also tennis courts and the bike trail close by. Also plenty of room for picnics and gazebos available for rent for your next family gathering. During the summer there is a great kiddie pool and ice cream stand... More
