Any discussion of Nanaimo Park has to begin with its playground: one of the newer ones in the city, it is excellent for kids around 5-9 or so — lots of variety, lots of different structures (including a climbing apparatus and a modern teeter-totter), even a little beach pit as well. It’s very good!
The city is in the midst of a decade-long spree of building 20 or so new playgrounds, and while one can lament how long the upgrades took, many of them are top notch and give play opportunities for different ages and abilities much better than previous generations.
The rest of the park is a giant collection of baseball fields, with a small incline with trees in the middle, along with a washroom. Your mileage may vary.
