The playground at Birk Park was a nice surprise to find, tucked in behind houses. At first I actually wasn’t sure there was a playground as you can’t see it from the road. And there is only a little of the park itself along Marie and Geoffrey streets that you access it from.
The neighbourhood playground is a decent size and it kept my boys happily entertained for quite some time. The bonus is the large open grassed area that is fenced on three sides.
When we visited in the afternoon, there was a great amount of natural shade. The main piece of play equipment is a large climbing play gym, with:
- twist slide
- monkey bars
- spider rope wall
- rock climbing wall
- shop and cubby house area underneath
There is a swing set with a baby bucket seat next to the climbing play gym. The ground under the play equipment is synthetic grass and in need of some TLC.
Along the front of the playground is a fence to prevent kids from fall over the small retaining wall, but the playground isn’t fenced. Next to the playground are a few park benches. And a small path runs between the two streets, in front of the playgrounds, that is good for riding on.
Finding Birk Park
Birk Park goes from Marie and Geoffrey Streets and has only a little bit of street frontage. There is street parking on both streets and no nearby public transport.
