Saint-Émile Park

1-DSC08826

If you’ve got a little monkey there’s a lot to swing from here!
Monkey bars, sky wheels, other…swingy things. 

The playground here is completely fenced and gated (there are a few gates, so check them all if you have a runner), and has both play areas just steps away from each other. 
The play structure for older kids has all those rings, ladders and corkscrews, slides, and the Cliff Climber which makes me nervous every time they go up. 
The toddler climber has stairs, a gear panel (that works!), a Block Climber, a couple of slides and a crawl tunnel. 
There are both baby and adult swings. 

It’s…good. But seems like it’s missing something. Maybe some spring riders? A sand shovel? Some more ground-level activities? 

The rest of the park has soccer fields, a half basketball court, a horseshoe pit, bocce (or is it pétanque?), and a ping pong table. 

Things to note:
-There was fairly easy street parking on Rue Saint Germain. 
-The playground has zero shade, but just outside of the fencing are some mature trees, as well as a gazebo. 
-There’s a drinking fountain right in the play area.
