des Lilas Park

This is a pretty decent neighbourhood park, but the colours are shockingly awful. I just don’t think I could buy a house beside a pink and green playground. Gah. (Though it’s not as bad as Chateaux Kirkland’s green and purple shockingness!)

There are two play areas here, both on wood chips and with climbers and swings for big and little kids. 
The toddler climber from GameTime has stairs, a long tunnel, a couple of metal ladders, slides, a broken Piston Wall Panel activity (another broken panel in Kirkland), and an Interactive Shapes Panel. Just beside is the two-kid ride-on dinosaur that both kids always love (and argue over).

The big climber from Landscape Structures is pretty inaccessible to anyone younger than 5 as there are no stairs, but older kids might like the monkey bars, swinging pods, metal ladders and rungs, and the steep Summit Climber. There’s also the funny little stand-alone swing that my little guy always thinks is made just for him.

Under the bizarre circus tent shelter on stilts is a picnic table where you can watch both climbers, there are some benches around and though it is fenced, there are wide open gates towards the street and the walking trails along the back of the park. Oh, and no shade.
