Favourite Splash Pads

baby showersugar cookies (1)

I kind of love splash pads. They’re safe if your little one isn’t yet swimming; they’re open pretty much all day and into the evening; they don’t require any municipal staff; you can come and go as you please; and they’re FREE! 
We’ve visited ALL of the ones on this list (and all of them in the SPLASH PADS section on the website).
These are our current favourites and each one is right beside, or near a playground. You’ll find the park and splash pad’s description, a full size picture gallery, and VIDEO for each one of our favourites listed below. 
And as always, as we visit more this list will probably change! We’ll be checking out more in Saint-Léonard, Montreal-North, Le Plateau and beyond this summer.

One of our all-time favourite parks, and a great splash pad with a MASSIVE dump of water that’s good for older kids.
So awesome we came two days in a row. Also, I really love this photo!

2. Valois Park-POINTE-CLAIRE
OMG. The Superwave is simply amazing. There’s always a crowd of kids (and adults!) underneath waiting for it to tip. The ship’s wheel is a toddler favourite, and there are other not-too-intense water features for little ones. 
Bonus: The bathroom and changing rooms are actually unlocked when they’re supposed to be!
p.s. More picnic tables have been added since I took photos.

7. LaSalle Park-LACHINE
OMG. This is THE destination for summer of 2016. This brand new splash pad and wading pool is huge and spectacular. I wasn’t allowed a camera in the wading pool, so the video is of just the splash pad. Pictures of the pool area are in the post.

Cost: FREE. Really? YES!

8. Georges-Saint-Pierre Park-NDG-CDN
A cheerful and fun splash pad that’s fully fenced and with lots of space. My little one liked the small spraying critters, while the 8-year old liked the tall sprayers and the water cannons.
Bonus: Two great playgrounds!

13. Boischatel Park-ÎLE-PERROT
Yes, it’s another Île-Perrot splash pad on the list. What can I say, we like them all and Boischatel is probably our favourite. Great landscaping, a “moat”, ship and steering wheel! It’s just really pretty.

19. Saint-Vincent-Ferrier Park-VILLERAY–SAINT-MICHEL–PARC-EXTENSION
This park is sooooo tiny, and while the toddler playground is ok, the splash pad is FANTASTIC. It’s quite amazing how much stuff they fit into this space. And it doesn’t feel crowded. LOVED the nautical theme with the steering wheel, boat, and palm trees 🙂

20. Maynard-Ferguson Park-VERDUN (NUN’S ISLAND)
This is a really pretty splash pad right within the playground’s fencing, which makes it easy if you have some kids who want to splash and some who want to play!
Bonus: Beautiful waterfront walking trails nearby.
