The Best Parks and Playgrounds

We love visiting a new park or playground. It breaks up the summer and makes life a little more interesting, doesn’t it? When we do play at a new park, you can be sure we will you all about it! If you have any questions about a spot we’ve visited, please ask! And use the yellow tags just below to filter the parks based on your needs. 

You can also scroll father down and find the parks sorted by city to help narrow your search. 

Try the brand new fenced-in playground at Maple Park. How about the regal splash pad at Coronation Park? Shell Park and Waterdown Park are known for their epic skate parks. Or hop in the car and visit the natural playground Exhibition Park

Break up your routine and visit a new playground, natural space, skate park or conservation area today!
