Don't go out of your way to get to this park unless you want to have a space for the kids to run around. It's a great place to sit, ride a bike through or have a picnic.

There may be multiple sets, but I recall the ones near the tennis courts off Princes Park Drive at MacPherson Street, just South of the Ikon Oval. There is a children's playground as well, seats and shade.
