Dennis the Menace Park

After moving to Pacific Grove, one of our first stops was Dennis the Menace park in Monterey. The creator of the Dennis the Menace cartoon, Hank Ketcham, designed this park in the 50s, and though it has changed a lot since then, it’s still an iconic spot where kids can have a blast doing what they love best: play.

This park is a paradise to kids of all ages. There are several play structures, swings, a small maze, a roller slide, a climbing wall, a bridge, and tons of places to run around and be a kid. There’s only one exit/entrance, so older kids can run around while parents relax by the gate. We brought a picnic lunch and spread our picnic blanket on the grass near the entrance. This park has bathrooms, a parking lot, and even a snack shack. 

Good to know: Dennis the Menace Park is closed Tuesdays during the school year.
