This little park in Wellington is one of my favourite places in Prince Edward County. It's especially fun if you happen to have a couple of kids in tow. Alas, my kids are a little too old to enjoy the park now, but when I'm in the area I still do stop the car and remember all the grand times we had here. It's really just a simple old-fashioned playground where kids can still run around and use their imaginations.
The equipment is always well maintained and the fact that the park overlooks Lake Ontario makes it a pleasant place for parents to sit and watch the kids play. Sometimes it's fun to participate as well. One of the play structures is built like an old fashioned ship, and my son and I used to practice our pirating skills here. Yarrrrrr.
There are also a few charcoal grills scattered around the park, so it's a great place to bring some burgers or hotdogs and make it a lunch time activity. There is a washroom in the park which is always well maintained, so you won't have to worry about the kids needing to pee. Wellington is one of those communities that has a tremendous pride in itself, and this park is a shining example of that.
If you happen to be driving through the village of Wellington on your way to Picton and you happen to have a couple of restless youngsters in the car, I would suggest a quick stop in this park to get some legs stretched. It might be difficult rounding everybody up afterwards though.
