Do you have a favourite Playground?

Do you have a favourite playground in or around Victoria? We've only just begun our exploration of all the fun, fabulous and weird parks around the city but we are always looking for new ones to visit. Tell us about your favourite playground and why you love it. You can use the comment box below this entry (click on the title above- 'Do you have a favourite playground' and it'll take you to the page where you can comment).

Looking forward to hearing from you.

  1. Banfield Park behind Vic West Y - great equipment for all ages, beautiful water setting, grass to run around on and trees to hide behind for hide and seek, it's our favourite!

  2. In the summer, you must check out Peter Pan Water Park in Oak Bay. I think it is still called Peter Pan? Can anyone clarify?

    I heard Beckwith is wonderful since they redid it. I must go to it soon!

    Great blog!

  3. Beckwith is fantastic! You should definitely go there. They have a water feature there too. We will be reviewing that playground pretty soon!

  4. Ryan Street playground, the playground beside George Jay school, Stadacona Park playground, Alexander park, the playground in Beacon Hill park on Cook Street, the playground inside Beacon Hill park, Majestic playground, Crystal Pool playground, Gorge Park playground and loads more I'm forgetting.

  5. Tulista park in Sidney on Lochside dr.The park has 3 different playgrounds all for different ages from toddlers to older children. The playgrounds are totally fenced in and outside the fence is a big field to run in. The park is also located on the water, so if you get tired of the playground you can take a walk on the beach. There are facilities (not always the cleanest but there if needed), a water fountain and a covered picnic area. There is also plenty of parking, could use more garbage cans though.

  6. Park on Resthaven dr. in Sidney, close to Resthaven and Bowerbank rd. It has newer playground equipment.My daughter especially likes the puppet theatre attatched to the playground. It is fenced in and surrounded by a field and also on the water. Not a nice beach to walk on but there is a path beside the beach. There is also a wharf so you can take a walk to look at the boats; one of my daughter's favourite things to do there. Negatives, no facilities and not a whole lot of parking.
    The park at Panorama Rec. center in North Saanich. A very popular park! A newer, well kept playground. It is good for all ages and is wheel chair accessible. Has a climber, big tire swing and a big rock to climb on.
    Cenntennial park in North Ssannich
    Has lots of swings a nice climber and a field to run in. There is also a forest trail to go for a walk in. Lots of parking and facilities. Does get busy on weekends becausw of soccer and baseball games in fields.
