This was a great find after wandering around Lasalle for a bit. “Here, have another snack, we’re almost there!”
This park is fully fenced AND gated (though one gate wasn’t latching), has two play structures from Quebec-based Jambette and a small splash pad!
There’s nothing fancy or amazing about the water features, but it was nice in that you could have kids in both play areas, and still be able to watch another one in the water. Everything is very close together.
The toddler climber has stairs, a ladder and steps; two steering wheels, slides and a tic-tac-toe wall; an “ice cream parlour” and a clock at ground level. It was nicely shaded at 11am and I think it will be for most of the day.
Across a little garden/grass area is the large climber. And what doesn’t it have?
There are stairs, ladders, climbing webs, slides, binoculars, elevated stepping stones (so scary!…for moms), footholds, rope climbers and monkey bars. I love these Jambette climbers as there’s always so much stuff to discover.
THEN, there’s the little splash pad. I don’t actually care that it was small, because it’s fantastic that some cities like Lasalle, Verdun, Vaudreuil etc have SO MANY. The spray here was gentle but the 2-year old would STILL not go in. We’re going to have to have an intervention.
There’s some greenspace to run around, a small basketball court, big and baby swings (kind of set back from the rest of the playground) and a water fountain! That worked!!
