Boswell Square

SW 14th and SW Boswell, Topeka

This park preserves the city block occupied by Boswell Junior High from 1922 to 1980. A nicely landscaped brick walk features the names of several former Boswell students and leads to the Boswell Neighborhood Wall of Fame, where the building's 1922 date stone is displayed. A gazebo, modern playground equipment, basketball courts and shaded benches highlight the park's amenities, while a large open field with a backstop is perfect for ball games.



Big Shunga

SW Murrow Ct. and SW Shunga , Topeka

Big Shunga is exactly what the name indicates: BIG. You might enter the 95-acre park at Washburn and Shunga Drive, but you could also spot it again off 29th Street. Big Shunga is part of the park system that ties into the Shunga Trail. Near the concrete trail, the park is shady and tree-lined. Memorial benches provide a place to stop, catch your breath during a run or bike ride, and listen to birds tweet from the nearby trees. Rehydrate at a fountain. At Shunga and High a playground area features play equipment and a merry-go-round.
