Paradise Park Playground- Esquimalt, Victoria

Paradise Park playground is tucked into a small fanced park on Paradise Street between Lyall and Head. AND, it's really a toddler playground. It's older and a little worn and not very glamourous but our 1.5 year old LOVES it.

There is one main oversized plastic climbing structure with three slides. There are tiny little swings that look like they've been leftover from the 70's- one toddler and one big kid and then there are a selection of bouncy things, an old fashioned digger machine and a tunnel. I forgot to check if the calling tubes work, but there's a set of them too.

On a sandy base, this playground is safe, small and has benches for resting parents to relax on. There are no facilities or shade and the parking is street parking. There is come grass to play on too. If you want to go somewhere low-risk where your little ones can have fun, this is a great playground and it's popular for an out-of-the-way spot too- I had to return twice before I could get a photo without kids everywhere. If you want to make a day of it, the end of Paradise Street hits Head right where the West Bay Waterway path runs and so you can walk or bike along that for scenic views and sightings of birds, boat planes and if you're lucky, maybe a ship or two!
