Despite its aging play structures, Dufferin Grove Park, beside the Dufferin Mall, is one of the nicest shaded playgrounds in the city. Perfect for my toddler and preschooler on a hot sunny day. The kids love it. The wading pool is open from June to Labour Day. The public bathroom is quite a walk away for my kids and is rather smelly. My biggest issue with this place is the water/mud course they provide for older kids. Great for them. A recipe for extremely dirty preschoolers for me. Despite that, it is a regular on the downtown park rotation.
