This park is like an oasis in a never ending desert of playgrounds with no sun.
After having been scorched at Villeret Park, we were thrilled to stumble upon this tree-surrounded, and super fun playground.
Lots and lots of shade AND all the equipment in the same area.
The toddler and big section are right beside each other, which was great for me, with two kids of totally different ages.
We last saw the blue and red Climbing Blocks at Trottier Park in Dollard, but there they were just in the middle of nowhere. In this climber from Landscape Structures they are used as stairs, and with just a bit of help, he loved going up (and down) them. There’s also a Pod Climber to get to the platform, though I found that the handrail is placed realllly far from the pods making it impossible for short arms to use it help for balancing. The little one was of course obsessed with the steering wheel and stayed up there a while 🙂
…which was fine because I could easily see his brother playing on the big climber. There’s a rope Funnel Climber, the pretty Cloudburst triple slide, Triple Ring Fling sky wheels, metal ladders and rungs, a stand-up spinner, and rock climbing wall. Whew! In the surrounding sand there’s also a horse spring-rider, and some stand-alone monkey bars.
We also finally tried out the bizarre looking square baby swings that we’ve been seeing around Pierrefonds. And you know what? They’re kind of brilliant! Maybe not for an itty-bitty baby (but do they really go swinging anyways?), but for my 20 month-er, who really wants to try the big swings but falls off, the flat bottom with the frame around is a great step from the baby swings to bigger swings.
Eventually we had to go, but on a hot day, this was a great shady little neighbourhood park to visit.
