This playground had some neat stuff, some broken stuff, and some puzzling stuff.
I really like the climbers by Kompan, but this particular model has no stairs, so it was a bit tricky for the 2 year old to get up. He figured out the mini climbing wall to get to the slide, and was able to climb the metal rungs to access the other side, which is just a platform. We didn’t notice that the rope wall connecting the two platforms was broken in two places until he fell on his face (an email has been sent to Pierrefonds). We both really like the ground level sand table with a sifter, spinny wheel and funnel. We generally pretend it’s a Starbucks and I get a “latte”.
There are some cute Racer spring riders and a spinny bowl, the kind that never stop until someone is green; and two posts that used to hold a little Kompan hammock swing, but are now….posts.
There are different sand sections here, so the section next door has the baby swings, and the next area has a big spiderweb climber (with a rope bridge!), a strange big-kid climber and some big swings.
The climber has one of those not-really-a-slide slides that also wiggles, platforms, and these hand grip/slide things that I’m pretty sure only an American Ninja Warrior could do.
It was really, really sunny in the shade-less sand. There are some small trees around and large trees in the centre courtyard (with benches), but other than that, hot!
There is a large parking lot because of the tons of mini soccer fields, but there’s no fencing and while there were bathrooms, they were locked. Boo.
p.s. While we were playing there was also a daycamp going on in the adjoining soccer fields. If your kids go there, you’re lucky as the counsellors sounded amazing and the kids were having a great time 🙂
