EDITED 2017: This park got a teensy-tiny makeover recently. Makeunder?
The sand in the playground has been completely replaced by wood chips, the spring riders and sand shovel are gone, and the basketball court has been repaved and two cheerful yellow picnic tables added.
So basically, the playground is now JUST the two play structures. The original post from 2015 is below, I didn’t update the pictures. Because neither of the kids wanted to play here again 🙁
I had NO idea this park was here until I was wandering around (virtually) on Google Maps.
It’s hidden behind a sound wall just off Chemin St. Marie and you can access it by Place Baron, or Place Smiley which is even closer to the actual play equipment.
Even with the sound barrier blocking the highway, it’s REALLY loud and not exactly calming.
The park is a funny long layout with paved paths and some greenspace on one end and the basketball court and playground on the other.
The climbers (both from Landscape Structures),
spring-riders and swings are all together in the same section, making it easy to supervise kids of all ages.
The toddler climber is decent, with stairs, a long tunnel (full of water when we were there), multiple slides and some wall panels including the pilot panel and the adorable ground level Space Travel panel
Beside the climber is a broken and rusty sand digger, and a couple of spring riders. There is also ONE big swing, and ONE baby swing. ?
The large climber is accessible by a climbing wall with rope or a metal corkscrew ladder. There are slides, sky wheels and swinging stepping stones.
There is NO shade over any of the play equipment, but there are a couple of big trees around the edge, with a picnic table under one.
