Robert Minipark

This park doesn’t appear on Google Maps but you can find it on the corner of Boulevard Lacordaire and Boulevard Robert, directly north of the great Wilfrid Bastien Park which we visited on the same day. 
After playing at Wilfrid Bastien for a while (really, go and check it out!), we walked past the splash pad, waved at the ducks in the lake and then….”Hey! There’s another park over there!”

This little park is geared towards toddlers and could probably use a bit of TLC. While the play structure is a nice size, it’s covered in graffiti and needs a wash, the wooden spring riders are past their prime and are splintery, and the older seesaw needs a paint job. 
BUT, my toddler really liked everything anyways. (It’s just moms who are picky 😉 )
He tried everything out, and he and his older brother played a game of tag up and down the stairs of the climber, over the bridge, down the slides, and across the shorter-height-than-usual monkey bars. He loved the giant clock with the turning hands and the slanted wall climber. 
My 8-year old was intrigued by all the bad words (of course), and disappointed there were only baby swings. But got over it pretty quickly!

While we visited before the trees were in bloom, there are mature trees surrounding the entire play area and so there should be some good shade throughout the day. And while there is no fencing, the sand play area is set back a bit from the road. 
For bathrooms and water fountains, head back towards the large park across Boulevard Robert.
