Forster Park and Splash Pad in Oakville

Summer time is here and that means pools and splash pads! Forster Park is a nice little neighbourhood park in Oakville with a good playground, splash pad, tennis court and washrooms.  There are lots of nice tall trees, shade and a few picnic tables.

We’ve been to this park many times before but this was the first time our kids have ventured into a splash pad.  Our previously splash pad hating children finally tried a splash pad!

I loved that the splash pad area was right next to the playground.  We set up our blanket on the grassy area in the middle and then didn’t have to exert any energy moving around to different parts of the park 😊  It was a perfect spot for me to be lazy AND have a good view of my kids in each area of the playground.

Shade.  Glorious Shade.

As you may know from my other posts, we are a family of shade lovers and this park has lots of it.  Lots of tall trees and a few picnic tables.
