Dakin Park

We’ve seen different parts of this particular play structure before, so there were no big surprises at this park. But even though it’s a bit dated, the little guy enjoyed climbing up the large rock wall, coming down the triple slide (it’s one of our favourites), going through the crawl tube, and checking out the dinosaurs under the rock wall. 
It’s amazing what kids notice that we don’t!

Itty-bitty kids might have a hard time on the shallow metal stairs, so you might need to lend a hand to get up to the double slides. 
It’s not the ideal playground for the smallest kids, but my 4-year old could handle everything except the tricky metal ladders.
In the surrounding sand is a sand shovel, the ever popular Chubby Flyer plane, and 4 big and 4 baby swings. 
Under the canopy of trees and near the picturesque gardens are benches and a few picnic tables. 

The small wading pool/splash pad is available to non-residents for a fee. You can find the pool schedule and fees HERE.
p.s. The wading pool was not yet open for the season when we visited so I’m sure it’s usually much more sparkly than in our pictures 🙂
