We originally visited in Summer 2014, the description and photo gallery have been updated to reflect the work done by the city of Pierrefonds during summer 2015. Well done Pierrefonds!
This park is divided into two very separate playgrounds. Just off Rue Graham is the toddler park, which consists of a small climber with stairs, a telescope, slides, and some room to walk around. There are also baby swings, and some BRAND NEW equipment including new big-kid swings, a 3-dimensional climbing wall, a stand-up solo spinner, a super creative dragonfly teeter-totter, and the coolest thing (I think) is the Merry Musical activity centre by GameTime. It’s got bongos, shaker balls, a big contraption to yell (sing?) through, and according to the manufacturer’s description there are Calabazo and Udus. Not sure which they are but everything makes sound! I love that this is a great, ground-level activity which is accessible to all, except that it’s been placed down in the sand….which makes it not accessible to all.
Some landscaping has also been done, and the picnic tables have been placed on asphalt.
I’m glad we came back to check out the new equipment because there’s some fun stuff here for the littles.
No fencing, but it is slightly set back from the road.
There are mature trees surrounding the park, and there was pretty good shade over the entire playground when we visited around 9am on an early fall day.
I initially thought “I guess that’s it!” until the little one pointed emphatically to the other side of the park (on Rue King).
Follow the path past the tennis courts and soccer field, and you come to the big-kid climber. We did the big walk (it’s a big walk when you have short legs!) and found the big-kid section. There is zero sightline between the two playgrounds.
We checked out the shiny, big climber with some steeeeep slides, a moveable scaling wall, climbing wall and monkey bars. There is also a sort of teeter totter and some stand-up spinners. Best left to the big kids as the climber has no stairs or easy access.
This playground is right next door to the elementary school, so I suspect it is probably used either at recess/lunch, or during after school daycare. (However, we were there during recess and while the kids were outside in the field, they were not using the play equipment).
