Gordie’s Review (4.5 years old) – “I liked the pirate ship!
Nicky’s Review (17 months old) –
She liked the steps
Gordie’s Review (16 months old) – Wobbly bridges are fun!

Age Range: Proficient walkers to about age 9
Ground Cover: pea gravel

Features: Pirate play structure with 1 slide, a rope bridge/tunnel, treasure maps and a flying fox; Castle play structure with a slide, wobbly bridge, balcony and climbing walls; 2 swings (1 infant).

Surrounding Park Area: The playground is inside a small park with a few young trees,  some flat grassy space and a bike path down the centre. Shade: great shade underneath the play structure but little otherwise. The nearby trees will provide more shade as they mature.

Seating: 2 benches
Accessibility: there is a path between the two play structures but no accessibility inside the play area.

Overall Assessment: This was one of the first playgrounds I reviewed and it is still one of my favorites. Gordie saw a picture of the playground and had been asking to go ever since.

The park is small, but the play structures are big and provide a fun backdrop for imaginative play. Preschoolers and young school children will definitely be impressed.

It would definitely be worth a bit of a trip especially if you have a pirate or castle fan.
