Leyton Tot Lot Playground is located at Prairie Drive and Leyton Avenue in the northwest corner of the park.

The playground currently includes:

  • Two swing sets with:
    • Four swings for ages two to five
    • Four swings for ages five and up
  • A medium-sized slide
  • A teeter-totter
  • Sand under all play areas.

The playground will be redesigned using feedback from the community. The redesigned playground is proposed to include:

  • Playground equipment for ages two to five
  • Additional seating
  • Engineered wood fibre playground surfacing
  • Accessible play equipment and an accessible pathway connecting the playground to Prairie Drive. This means that people of all abilities will be able to play at this playground.

Improvements will only be made in the general playground area. This will not include any new water or lighting features or improvements to other areas of the park.
