Clifford Park

Huh. Kind of a strange park. 
The toddler section here is older, and in need of some TLC; while the big kid area (completely out of sight on the other side of the chalet) is brand sparkly new and pretty cool. 
So, ditch the little kids and bring just the older ones obviously 😉 Of course I had the toddler with me and not the older one. Doh!

We started off in the fenced, but not gated toddler area. There’s a decent play structure with stairs (watch the bottom one), slides and some climbing ladders, three VERY colourful spring riders (I think the frog might have a contagious skin infection), and some random-height baby swings. With a little work and some paint, this whole section could be a whole lot better, and cleaner. 
We ambled along the path to the new section and….tada, so much nicer. 
On wood chips, the play structure here is really creative and has some neat ways to get around including the steps bridge. There are also some new big-kid swings, a saddle spinner, and clean benches. 
Note that it’s in full sun, though there are lots of trees around the rest of the park and in the toddler area.

The frightening-looking chalet was closed, but there’s a porta-pottie beside the playground/baseball field. 

If you want a great aerial view, here’s a cool drone video from Mark Rivest of the park and surrounding area. There’s a fly-over of the playground at around the 3:20 minute mark.
