Eugène-Dostie Park

This is a HUGE park with a huge assortment of facilities and equipment including:
Two beach volleyball courts; a ton of tennis courts; baseball, soccer, and football fields; a skate park; a municipal pool; bocce; and a large chalet that’s been open every time we’ve been by!
Oh, of course there’s also a playground, AND, new since July 21st 2017 is the SPLASH PAD which has replaced the aging wading pool adjacent to the swimming pool.

I actually visited about 3 days too early as they were still preparing the concrete, but Kathelyn from Vortex Aquatic kindly forwarded me some pictures to use until we get to see it in person (hopefully with video 🙂 )
The giant Superwave has just been installed at the new splash pad in Pointe-Claire and is a MASSIVE hit, so I’m sure it will be the same at Eugène-Dostie.

The playground here is rather odd. It has a fantastic section on poured-in-place rubber with four adaptive swings. FOUR! But then there is nothing else in the park that’s accessible because everything else is on sand. So odd. It’s like “Hey kids who may be in a wheelchair or need extra help with mobility! You can come here to swing, but that’s it!”
The older play structure from GameTime is pretty decent, but could use a scrub and a fresh coat of paint to cover the rust. There are stairs, a metal bridge, slides and climbing walls, a steering wheel and activity panel. In the surrounding sand is a large dinosaur spring rider, two baby, and two adult swings. Nearby are benches and picnic tables and the chalet is just steps away. 

Things to note:
-The hours for the boroughs other two splash pads are 8:30-8:30, so I’ll assume this one is the same. 
-The playground is in full sun. There’s no fencing at all. 
-I parked at the giant lot off of Boulevard Chèvremont. You can also use the lot off Montée de l’Église, behind the library and closer to the chalet.
-According to THIS PAGE, the pool is accessible to non-residents for a small fee. You can find pool hours and info HERE
-If the chalet happens to be locked, there’s a porta-potty near the football field.

The pictures in the gallery are from a few different visits, I’ll eventually come back and redo them all.
