Beaubien Park

EDITED summer 2017: This park is currently undergoing some renovations to install a new SPLASH PAD! Work will be until November 2017, the park and playground remain open. You can read about the work HERE.


This was an interesting park. Actually, scratch that. It was a pretty park. 
We played in the playground (obviously) but enjoyed the meandering stream, pools of water, and the waterfall more.

We were the only ones there when we visited, but there are some day camps nearby, and judging by how packed down the wood chips are, there’s probably a lot of kids here usually. 
The play areas are fully fenced and gated, but with quite a few entrances. Both the older kids and the toddler sections are in the same area, with the latter on sand. 
Both my boys trotted off to their respective sides and I could easily see both of them while standing in the middle. “Watch me!, watch MEEE!”
The big-kid climber from GameTime has all sorts of ladders and rungs, a volcano rock wall, a tall twirly slide, and a cute “squirrel” log roller. The toddler structure is the smaller version and has stairs, three slides, and little seats at ground level. There are also baby and big swings. 
Within the fencing and next to the play areas are big and toddler picnic tables as well as a water fountain. 

We went out through one of the gates and stared, and stared at the waterfall (why is water so mesmerizing?), and followed the stream for a bit. 

This park also has soccer, terrain de pétanque, and skating rinks and a sledding hill in the winter. You can read HERE about sledding and other activities available at the park, as well as opening hours for the chalet in summer and winter. 
The playground is closest to Avenue Stuart, and we were able to easily get street parking, and skip right up to the playground gate.
