South Glenmore Park – 90 Ave. & 24 St. S.W.
Parking: There is a large free parking lot at the entrance to the playground
Surrounding Park Area: The playground is very close to Glenmore reservoir, home of the Glenmore sailing school which also has boat lessons. There are also walking, biking and hiking trails as well as tennis courts. Click here for a review of South Glenmore Park itself.
Shade: Nice mature trees provide good shade. The play structures also have some nice shade-providing canopies. It can easily get so busy at the park that it’s hard to find some shade though. Bringing a park umbrella or bringing chairs so you could sit under the gazebo would be a good idea.
Seating: Several benches and picnic tables. It can get very busy though, so you still may want to bring a picnic blanket.

Overall assessment: This spray park is brand new this summer (2015) and is a lot of fun. There are buckets that dump and can be spun, a boat you can stand in and lots of big and small sprays. There is also a little ‘river’ area that is popular with smaller kids. This park is very popular and can get quite busy. We were there on the first Friday morning and despite what the pictures below might suggest, it was super busy! If you have a little one who is a little overwhelmed there are some smaller sprays a bit out of the way next to the gazebo.
