Firetruck! The last time we saw a firetruck play structure (at Morgan Park in Baie D’Urfé) it was such a hit with the toddler that I was excited to show him this one.
The Freddy Firetruck from Playworld is adorable, bounces, has dials to ring the alarm, and TWO steering wheels. It’s easy to get in and out and when we were leaving some daycare kids had all piled in together.
But while my little one really liked the truck, he LOVED the Sidewinder Cycle (otherwise known as a motorcycle). He’s completely obsessed with motorcycles, even though I’ve clearly said he will never, ever, ever ride a real one. Ever.
In the sand there’s also a cute snowmobile spring rider (we raced), a spinning bowl, and a stand/sit spinning disk. Which admittedly, I fell off of.
Close to the road are six baby swings and then towards the middle of the park is more toddler equipment. An older stairs/slide combo was completely overlooked in favour of the bright and colourful climber from Jambette. With easy to climb stairs, slides, and activities at ground level (giant abacus, crawl tunnel, and double steering wheels) this climber is something that even the smallest kids can enjoy. THEN, there’s Jambette’s Moskito climber which is placed perilously close to the road, which is completely unfenced along about 300 feet.
Bigger kids can swing on the retro-looking swing set (love the lines of this thing, so artistic), spin on the stand up rotating rope climber, or scale Jambette’s challenging play structure. Not having a staircase, and with some pretty tricky ladders; I hoisted up the little one so he could come down the slide. Seven times. Interestingly, there is a fence all along the side of the playground in this section.
Everything is on sand/grass and there are four picnic tables and some benches scattered around. I liked that there’s a lot of equipment, though some of it is a bit scattered (I would have put the moskito climber closer to the other toddler equipment and away from the road). A fence here would do wonders as it’s all just a bit too close to the road, especially if you have a runner.
Hard to tell if there’s shade, but there are mature trees around the perimeter and some throughout the middle of the park.
