Playground Family Fun: Jubilee Park Bridgetown
There are so many great places to play in the Annapolis Valley! So, we intend to make our way across and let you know about the various playgrounds, telling you the best features and other important information about each one of them! Today, we are featuring Bridgetown’s Jubilee Park!
A group of Bridgetown area residents has created a Natural Playground in Jubilee Park. A natural playground is one that uses elements that you could find in nature – logs, boulders, hills, sand, stumps – put together to create a unique play area for children. The idea behind the Jubilee Park playground is that of a dry stream bed which winds around an island (the hill), through the trees, and empties into a large sand area.
Kids of all ages can enjoy the hill slide, the teeter-totters made from logs, the stepping poles and more.
There is a small slide built into a hill, as well as several other structures to climb in and around.
Babies and Toddlers
This would be a great playground for really small children, as all the pieces are manageable, and kids can adapt depending on their mobility and age.
Shade, Benches and Tables
There is plenty of all of this! Lots of places for picnics, and to stay out of the hot sun!
There are no accessible components to this playground. The surface is gravel, and there is a step up to get into the playground area.
There were no public bathrooms that we could find. However, in season, when the visitor information centre is open, there may be a public-use one there.
Also on site is a boat docking wharf, and when we were there, we saw youth swimming in the river.
This is a great playground for really small children. Older children will be bored within minutes. It’s a great place for a picnic, to rent a kayak, or to relax by the water.
Jubilee Park is in the heart of Bridgetown, right on the main street.
