Alphonse-Gravel Park (Pointe-Calumet)

A really lovely playground with lots to do for both the little one and the big one.

A whole row of swings, including an inclusive swing, an Expression tandem swing, and a bizarre stand-up…thing. 

“What is this? What do I do?”

“I have no idea. Pretend you’re on a skateboard?”


The play structures are fun with lots to climb and scale, but alas, no stairs on either. There are log slices to step across, a vertical “wood plank” wall to climb, and various ladders and slides. 

But wait, there’s more! 

Two giant and colourful spring riders: the cute snail and grasshopper. A saddle seat spinner, a neat raft that can hold a few kids (it was in use so I couldn’t get a picture), and a cable climber. 

In the park you’ll also find a picnic table, a covered gazebo with tables, and a beautiful rocking swing for old people like me.

Things to note:
-There is minimal shade around the edges and the playground itself is in full sun.
-The park is fenced but with open gates.
-There’s a great parking lot. 
-The park also has a baseball diamond and soccer fields.
