Gordie had a lot of fun on this playground, but did find it to be pretty challenging. It doesn’t offer a lot for toddlers, so I wouldn’t plan on them spending a lot of time here. The gardens also have fish to look at and a fountain (as well as the plants!) so it would still be a fun diversion.

I wasn’t sure what to expect for our first visit to the science centre. I had only been a few times to the old science centre (as a child and as a class volunteer) and didn’t remember much. With Gordie only being 2.5, I wasn’t sure whether he would be old enough to really appreciate the experience. I was pretty sure that we would only go a couple times a year at the most.
