The wooden one has been one of our standbys too. Not so much for being pretty, but for real young kids its so well enclosed. Thought it maybe had a few more years left in it after it seemed like they brought a new load of sand in earlier this year. No issues for us as far as slivers but you do have to wonder if or where liability issues potentially come into play with some of the older playgrounds. Does anyone have any info that could date it? The new one looks from the pic like its going to be great. Between this, Valleyview, Green Acres, Meadows, Rideau, Kirkcaldy and others it's such a great time to be a kid with how many new structures there are around town. I'm sure its going to draw in kids from a good radius (including Brookwood, which doesn't have its own playground like 9th St S does). Someone asked earlier about parking. Maybe someone's found a better option but it seems like you have to park on one of the residential streets in the area and walk in through one of the many paths that lead in. That or there is the small utility company house on the West side that should usually have a couple of spots on the street in front of it.
Place is crawling with kids this morning. Looks great... the big zip line is quite the feature! Just to speak further to the question about parking. I'm not sure how bylaw kosher this is, but there are no signs saying you can't..... if you enter Garnet Place from the West side there's a wide section of street that runs North-South that seems well-suited for parking without disrupting homes in the neighbourhood, obstructing driveway views and the like. From there there's a path that's a straight walk into the playground area. I'll see if I can get more information on what's recommended, I gather the city is putting out more info on the playground shortly. Also read into this however you see fit, but city crews were working at the old playground tilling and weeding. Just wanted to thank sokolovic for starting this discussion and posting the pics... as a parent its been a fun thread to follow! Edited by Adam, 2015-08-14 09:53:57
