Fréchette Park

Not a very big or exciting playground, but for some reason (the hill? the breeze?) we were really comfortable here. We’d picked up some picnic supplies for a summer dinner and were on the hunt for a (new-to-us) playground in the area. Since we’ve pretty much been to them all, we ended up here and despite the lack of tables said “We’re hungry!” and ate on the bench. I think there were picnic tables as there’s a spot that has three table support posts, but nothing else…just posts. (Edited: new tables were added in fall of 2015)

There are two little sections, both on sand, and each area has a (very) small climber, a couple of swings, and a rope spinner. Just the toddler climber has stairs and both have slides and metal ladders. 
My small guy had me spin him repeatedly in both spinners and lost a shoe along the way somewhere. 

There is some shade but not much, no fencing, and just street parking. There are also some very hilly/steep parts outside of the sand areas. 

NOTE: HOW did the spelling error on the “Parc Frechétte” sign on the toddler climber get past the playground equipment manufacturer, the installers, AND the city?? 

p.s. all this was supposed to be done in late 2015, so we’ll have to go back to take some new pictures:
Remplacement d’équipement de jeux sur ressort;
– Pavage des sentiers;
– Construction d’une surface de pavé de béton sous les tables de pique-nique existantes.
