UPDATE SUMMER 2020 – This playground is being redone.
Our first foray into TMR! I’ve never been to this area before and after passing by the beautiful houses (I picked out 237 I’d like to live in) I had high hopes for an impressive playground. And it was…..ok.
The climber from Landscape Structures is big and colourful, and is a two-in-one with the big-kid and toddler parts connected by a metal snake-y ladder. It makes it easy to keep an eye on multiple kids as it’s all compact. There are (steep) staircases for both sides, multiple slides (including a tube slide), crawl tunnels, musical chimes, ground level window/ledge, the curved Cozy Climber, metal ladders and rungs. I was fairly unimpressed with the caution tape holding together one of the ladders. Ack! So steer clear of that one.
There is a plane spring rider and a sand digger, baby and big swings, and all is on a sand base.
Just a few steps away and bordered by amazingly symmetrical hedges, is a small splash pad that was still on in early September. There are some super hard to turn elephant-head water cannons, a cute fire hydrant pole that has misty spray, the “don’t sit here!” bench that shoots out water (!), and lots of jets coming from the ground.
We were there about 10am and there was pretty good shade over the playground and a bit on the splash pad.
There are benches around and a couple of picnic tables and it was very tidy except for where someone had obviously hosted a birthday party earlier and had left ALL their garbage scattered around, including the piñata! Who does that??
Though there’s no fencing it’s all quite far back from the road. We parked in the small lot behind the school and beside the (super busy) tennis courts and followed the path to the playground.
