MUNDELL PARK PLAYGROUND
The unique climber hills make this playground look very familiar to the one at Shannon Mews Park. The hills invite children to climb over and under but can be a bit tricky for the younger ones. My two year old was able to climb them but going down was a bit too steep.
The hills link two platforms, one of which has a double curved slide, arched ladder and steps. The other platform is a bit underwhelming as it has a half climber hill to go up and another to go down. My two year old was confused how to get down this second platform as he was expecting another slide, although a sliding pole is an option for older kids.
Shaded partially by the nearby condo building and some trees, it’s a fun spot to stop by if you’re wandering the neighbourhood and enjoying the park’s greenscape with it’s open water features and fountains.
There’s also some bright yellow lounge chairs on either side of the park where we sat to eat our hotdog lunch. One set of chairs is under a pergola with an additional picnic table and overlooks the park from a patio-like ledge.
The Wesbrook community centre is within walking distance if one needs the washroom facilities. If visiting in the summer, bring your swimsuits because the community centre has a splash pad to enjoy as well.
It’s easy to make a day of it at Wesbrook village, which has many other playgrounds to explore – Noble Park playground, Smith Park playground, and Khorana Park playground. We will feature them all soon!
