Not far from Hamilton’s Beaumont Street is this small neighbourhood playground, Gregson Park. “Cannon to the left of them. Cannon to the right of them” You’ll notice two cannons as soon as you visit Gregson Park playground. These magnificent cannons flank the eastern entrance of Gregson Park complementing the war memorial in the park.
If you’re looking for a park with shade, this is it. Figtrees and palm trees shade the playground making it perfect for hot days. Although there is playground equipment, Gregson Park would definitely benefit by having more added. There is a small climbing structure with slide and rockers for smaller children but unfortunately the swings don’t include a baby swing. Most of the other climbing equipment is geared to older children.
However, there’s still much to recommend this park. Children will love exploring and playing make believe games in the palm tree grove next to the playground. It’s beautifully landscaped with river rocks and reminds one of a desert island.
If the kids tire of imaginary games, kick a ball around on the lawn. There is plenty of grass and many beds of beautiful flowers. It really is a lovely park for a stroll or picnic in the park.
