Besides the two playgrounds, this large park with lots of room to run around also has as splash pad, basketball, bocce, soccer, tennis courts, toboggan hill, a picturesque outdoor fitness area, and a park pavilion.
“THERE’S A PYRAMID!” said the little one as we walked up from the car.
He was right, it does seem like the tall brick…mountain/slide combo is a pyramid
The design of the big-kid playground is unlike any I’ve seen, and almost seems like it wasn’t a playground before (I’m guessing…)
Sunk down, the whole area is bordered by the wall, a wide ramp, and stairs going towards the pavilion and the toddler area. The metal slide is really unique, and there are also two adult swings, an intricate cable climber, and a play structure with ropes and metal rungs to cross.
Over in the toddler park are a quartet of spring riders, a small structure with stairs, a slide, and various ways to climb up. There are also ground level instruments like bongos and a calabazo, and baby swings.
Near to both playgrounds, but without the best sight lines is the small splash pad (see note below.) Run through the misting rainbows, take aim at a friend with the duelling elephant sprayers, or dance under the tall serpent.
Things to note:
-The splash pad hours are 9am-8pm.
-None of the play areas are fenced, and there’s the big drop down into the big-kid area.
-There is a tiny parking lot at 4755 rue Valéry, that also has accessible parking spots. You can also park on the road.
-Both playground areas are on sand.
