The girls and I checked out a park in Kensington on Monday. map I’m not sure it’s official name but could be referred to as the “Lion’s Club” park as it is on a big piece of land behind the Lion’s Club/Coles Restaurant. It is great for toddler type people as the play structure is scaled down a bit and there is a miniature version of the normal playground swing sets including two swings that a toddler can swing in. There is also a big “Little Tikes” tree structure (that’s seen better days but still fun) and a little “”hut” with a mix and match puzzle and seats. It’s a little high but good for moms to sit in with small babies. The grass was a little long but it’s surrounded by houses and it’s good and far away from the road. The “Ken NET” (CAP) site and a local restaurant are very close by should people need “facilities” of any sort. And the Frosty Treat Dairy Bar is practically around the corner!
To get there, from Charlottetown, just as you come into Kensington and before you get to the lights, you turn left onto Barrett Street and then right onto Garden Dr (or the rink road). You then almost immediately turn right into the “KEN NET” entrance and head straight back between it and the Lion’s Club and you’ll see the park. I drive right up to the “bridge”. If you miss Barrett St. just turn left at the lights and then left onto Garden Drive. Watch for Coles Restaurant on the left and just beyond it Ken Net.
