Went there with the girls a couple of times during the trip. Easter Weekend was full but still plenty of space for the kids. There are various playgrounds here and the ship and Indian village is great. The girls has so much fun , 3 and 5 yo.

Great playground with many different areas for children to play in so they can use their imaginations, run off excess energy, appeals to different age groups and you can take a picnic.

Went here after going to the museum, the day was beautiful with the sun shining and loads of children out in the park. The water must have been freezing but the children and a few adults were still in it. A nice walk along the lake and an ice cream for the children. Great day.

Very clean and safe play area set in Kensington Park. Centrepiece is a large ship for kids to climb and explore, but there are many more small areas for kids to explore and have fun. Several wigwams provide a great opportunity for kids to use their imagination. Best to visit in warm weather so kids can enjoy playing in the... More

I recommend to go there if you are close to Hyde Park with Delmas. We were there with kids (4 and 5 years) and were very excited. The field is fenced, the child will not go away alone. A lot of spots for playing.

I wanted to be a child again, only to enjoy the playground. With a huge pirate ship and sculptures, you can see the children playing using their imagination. I really think they forgot their tablets and computers while they were pretending being pirates. It is a wonderful memorial for a wonderful woman!

We took our 2 1/2 year old here last week and he did not want to go home! I was skeptical at first about how much he could actually do when I saw the pirate ship, but it was great! (Tip: if you are following/helping a toddler navigate the pirate ship, the easier way to get on is around the... More
