I don’t think I’ve ever been to this part of Pierrefonds before, which is too bad because it’s really cute! We passed a lot of parks which had too many people to photograph so we’ll be making another trip here soon.
This little park had no one so we stopped and played for a while. It’s nicely landscaped with a central circle of benches and the two play areas on either side. There’s also a picnic table on the grass. While it looks fairly newly done, it would be nice if it had some weeding done, as when we visited it looked a little unkept.
The toddler climber from Little Tikes Commercial was pretty generic but had stairs, which have been missing in so many of the “toddler” climbers we’ve been seeing lately. There’s also the Find the Dinosaur wall panel, a little tunnel, slides, and metal ladders. Just beside are a couple of baby swings.
The big-kid climber from GameTime is really cool! Fun and challenging features including the 8′ high Wall Climber, the Giant Wave Climber (which is a cross between a slide and a ladder), the Rockscape Spider Web, ropes for balancing, the Rock Step Link, telescope, a super steep slide and tons more metal rungs and ladders. No stairs here, so the little guy stayed below and played with some toys that had been left by a previous visitor. There are also big-kid swings, three barf-inducing Saddle Spinners from Landscape Structures, and a spring-rider motorcycle.
There are trees surrounding the playground but we were there at 6:30pm so it was hard to say if there would be shade during the day.
Another thing I liked about this park is that the toddler and big-kid climbers are right beside each other, so it’s easy sight-lines for someone (like me!) who has kids of varying ages and abilities.
