In Sanctuary Lakes, at the furthest point, as Sanctuary Lakes Boulevard North turns into Sanctuary Lakes East Boulevard and North Shore Drive. You can see the peaks of the shade sails before you see the actual playground. This playground opened earlier this week, and there is still a bit of landscaping work to be completed. Jack and I visited on Boxing day, and there was a bit of water underfoot around the equipment. The water play was not in use yet, as were the water drinking fountains and BBQ area. It’s great that the team who designed this, actually thought to include the shade sails to create some cooler play areas. Although warm this morning, the cool breeze off the water made for a pleasant trip to have a play. The area is both tanbark and soft rubber, which is great underfoot.

Watching the kayaks on the water, and although the park is called Regatta Beach, I didn’t even think to bring the bucket and spade to play in the sand! To be honest, this play area is more suited for older kids, who love to climb. There isn’t a lot to do for someone Jack’s age yet. I imagine that when the water play is up and running, he would have fun in that area. He was happy to have a go on the swing and the spinner bowl. He also liked that there was excess water around the digger, so he thought that that was hilarious to move around, although he is still not big enough to use and move the digger by himself.
