Happy Playground- Queenston Park Coquitlam

I think this might be the last park review for this year, as the rain season is here, we won’t be seeing a lot of playgrounds anytime soon. Too slippery. Although if you put on your rain gear, I am sure there is something to do and be safe :).

This cute park has been around for a while, we simply haven’t got the chance to go visit and test out the gear. So a few weekends ago, we stopped by and took a few pictures. Because parking will be something you will need, unless you live walking distance from the park, I will go ahead and say that parking is extremely limited. If you get there at ‘rush hour’, not sure if playgrounds have such a thing, but if this play area had one, it might be challenging to find a spot. Sunny weekends could be considered rush hour I guess, right?

Also, no washrooms.

What you notice about the park the second you enter it, is that it is not your usual playground. It is meant for different age groups, however some area require a certain amount of strength, like the climbing area that you see in my pictures. Actually the whole park is a climbing area with a huge slide. Astrid loved it, which meant we had to go up and down those stairs lots of time. The slide is basically on a pretty steep sloped edge, which of course offers a nice view down the mountain.

Apart from the tall slide, there is another section for small children, up to 5 I guess, and another one for 6 and older, which a twisted slide and additional climbing structures. The entire playground is on a rubberized surface, which we personally prefer, to the wood chips and/ or sand/ rocks playgrounds. But it very much depend on the season too.

If you’re into swings, there aren’t any. And I don’t think there will be any in the future either, as we didn’t notice any intention for an extension.

There is a little seating area by the small slides and a tennis playground next to it. But the main attraction is the children play area.

That is it for now. Go check it out!
