Splash pads have become a welcome trend in municipal park fun for children. Pierrefonds, Dorval, Ile-Perrot, Kirkland and Vaudreuil-Dorion are just some of the Burroughs and cities offering fun in the water to those who would prefer to forego municipal pools.
These local parks often offer themed adventures as is the case with Bois Chatel park in Ile-Perrot. A pirate theme offers a moat, bridges, a steering wheel, binoculars and a treasure map all with lots of water. Ceres Park in Pierrefonds offers two separate areas with water spinners and jets with buttons to start the water sequence. The Valois Park splash pad pictured above has a giant wheel that dumps gallons of water on squealing little ones.
