UPDATE JULY 2019: Make sure to fill out THIS SURVEY about the future of this park and its facilities and equipment!
From the borough’s FB page:
“Première étape de la consultation sur le parc Saint-Simon-Apôtre 🌳
Vous fréquentez le parc Saint-Simon-Apôtre, habitez ou travaillez dans le quartier Saint-Simon?
👉L’arrondissement souhaite améliorer le parc dans les années à venir et veut avoir votre opinion et vos idées! Remplissez le sondage en ligne : surveymonkey.com/r/parc_st-simon
Une équipe mobile de l’arrondissement sera également présente dans le parc durant le mois de juillet pour consulter les petits comme les grands. Voilà pour nous une nouvelle façon de consulter pour mieux rejoindre la population du secteur. Surveillez-nous!”
After you’ve dragged the kids through all the stores of Marché Centrale (don’t miss the SAQ depot!), you’ll be happy to know that there’s a park (and splash pad) nearby.
So you can happily sip your wine while they dance through the water. I’m kidding! I know you’ll be chugging it.
The playground equipment here is quite new and wonderfully colourful. There are three great play structures in two separate sections. I just had the toddler with me but he was able to play on everything!
We’ve seen the Landscape Structures Dino Climber before and it’s easy to climb, with a little double slide into the sand. Just beside is a dino spring rider, and then another dinosaur-themed climber from GameTime. It’s got a happy dino staircase, “boulders” to climb, slides, stairs, and ladders. In this same area are baby swings and picnic tables.
Hope across the path and there’s an interesting climber with rings to crawl through, pods to cross, monkey rings, a wall to climb, and a rope bridge. Beside is a cable climber and adult swings.
Just south of the chalet, and not within eyesight of the playground is the small splash pad. This must have been a wading pool in a previous life, and now it’s a rather dated splash pad. A coat of paint and it could all look a lot better. It’s fully fenced (but no gate) and has benches and picnic tables right within the fencing.
Things to note:
-The playgrounds are partially fenced, but have big wide open spots leading to the street.
-The chalet bathroom was open when we visited, but there are no posted hours.
-You can find the borough’s splash pad hours HERE. They should be 8am-8pm daily.
-The playground is located at the corners of Legendre Ouest and rue Meunier.
