The 3-year old is pretty easy to entertain in parks. It’s got a swing? He’s good to go.
But if a playground has a pretend house? He’s in heaven.
This little park has quite a bit of equipment including a large-ish toddler play structure, baby and big swings, a rope climber and big-kid structure, AND the cutest little house from Berliner Seilfabrik. With windows and a ledge, it was the perfect place to sell me coffee, three tacos, and a smoothie. And all for the low, low price of $65!
I love toddler math.
The house is the only part that’s on sand, and the rest of the playground equipment is on wood chips. There IS nice, safe fencing, but no gates.
In the toddler area is a pretty good GameTime climber with stairs (though one is a bit mangled), metal rungs and ladders, a bridge, animal tic-tac-toe panel, and multiple slides. Underneath are a couple of spring riders; a cute whale, and a deranged-looking…is that a seal wearing a sailor hat?? I actually said an audible “Ah!” and took a step back. The little one thought it was adorable of course and named it Bob.
Passing the benches and drinking fountain in the middle of the park, we walked over to the larger structure which is attached by a cool rope bridge to the large rope climber. It’s inaccessible to anyone but older kids, but those who can get up are rewarded with a steep slide down.
The Société d’histoire de Pointe-Saint-Charles has some great info about the origins of the different place names and history of the area. You can read about parc des Cheminots HERE, just do a search for “Cheminots”.
