One gives higher marks to modest parks that achieve their purpose than larger ones that don’t, which is why little MacDonald comes in here. 

A simple city block park at 44th Avenue one block east of Main, MacDonald has a large tennis court and an expansive if aged playground. 

But the playground’s design is good — a wooden structure with multiple slides, along with devices that let kids propel themselves from one end of the playground to the other — and the many trees give a lovely neighbourhood feel, particularly in the heat of summer. 

It’s been an unassuming neighbourhood park for decades, but it comes together nicely as a simple place where people of all ages can congregate, so our complaints are minimal.
