A perfectly adequate playground- the type of equipment that you might find if you did a Google search for “playground equipment.”
Just a few minor touches that push this over an 80:
The freight train passes by the north end of the park if you’re there during the week. If your kid is a train addict, this is a rare opportunity, as most parks tend to be close to GO or Via tracks, rather than freight lines.
The entry off Pricefield Road is a neat little gate with the word “Pricefield” embedded in the pavement. Very Rosedale.
A nicely shaded garden at the south end provides a calm snack spot.
Speaking of calm, this park is surprisingly quiet, considering how close it is to Yonge Street.
There’s a little tube that protrudes from one side of the climber, and then slants upwards and re-connects with the climber a bit higher up. There are little holes along the side of it as it ascends, and my son enjoyed trying to escape my tickling hands as he crawled through. Nothing mind-blowing, but it’s a bit of equipment that I don’t think I’ve seen anywhere else.
If you’re in the area, or if you’re building a blog that’s attempting to rate every playground in the city, go for it. Not worth travelling a huge distance otherwise.
