One of the big draws of Granville Island in the summer is the Waterpark, the largest free water park in North America. Open sometime in May – early September, the waterpark includes a water slide, a large and varied spray park, as well as adjacent fun in the large sandbox and playground.
The waterpark was fantastic, with lots of opportunities for even the most water-shy child to explore. Water pooled near a drain, and Aiden loved that, and found a few of the spray areas not too forceful. He was desperate to try the slide, but I don’t think toddlers can go down, even with adults, until they are a little taller.
The playground itself is quite old, in need of an update, but still in fairly good condition. It’s not huge, but with all there is to do at Granville Island, it doesn’t need to be.
We will be back next year for sure!
