Playing at the park

beacon-hill-eastvale-park-20130806-9We decided to roll out for one more splash pad tonight. Not a whirl wind tour like earlier today, but just hanging out at one water park.

Just one.

Our little monkey was disappointed we didn’t get to spend more time on the slides, so we did just that in Beacon Hill.

Beacon Hill / Eastvale Park Splash Pad

beacon-hill-eastvale-park-20130806-8They’ve painted the City of Ottawa swirl on the splash pad at Beacon Hill / Eastvale Park. It actually looks kinda cool when you’re standing on the adjacent play structure.

  • The splash pad here has three ground fountains – one of them goes higher than the tree line.
  • There are also two elephant water cannons – you can be on team blue or team red.
  • The start button is on the fire hydrant (which is yellow – most splash pad hydrants seem to be red.)

This is a nice park. There’s a gazebo beside the splash pad and the play structure beside the water park is a lot of fun for little kids.

We came in the evening, so the community center was closed, but there are probably public washrooms in there.

A lot of people were enjoying the evening breeze, including two different dogs (and their owners.) I think the golden retriever and the pug were both a little surprised when the ground sprinklers went from bubbling fountains to giant geysers.
