Looking for the best playgrounds in Oshawa?! You’ve come to the right place! Oshawa has been busy redeveloping several parks in the city and that means that there are several brand new playgrounds to check out! Here, in no particular order, are our favourite Oshawa playgrounds!
Sandy Hawley Park
Sandy Hawley Park is a cute barn themed playground in North Oshawa. The playground features a play structure that looks like a big red barn with two slides, stairs and various climbing features. There are also some cute bouncers, teeter-totters, spinners and an inclusive swing. Beside the playground there is a small splash pad and pathway through the trees that leads to another great playground!

Kingside Park is a new playground in Oshawa. It features two climbing structures with a treehouse theme. The larger structure has a rock wall, climbing web and twisty slide. The smaller structure can be accessed by an accessible ramp that leads straight from the paved path. There is also a smaller slide for toddlers. The playground also includes several spinners and swings.
Location: 537 Tennyson Ave, Oshawa
Pinecrest Park is another brand new playground in Oshawa. This playground has a cute forest theme and is very popular! Pinecrest Park features two play structures joined together by a bridge. There are two slides and a variety of climbing features, including several climbing poles that look like trees! My kids’ two favourite features at this park were the teeter totter and the preschooler-height monkey bars. The monkey bars were the perfect height for my 5 year old to practice – low enough so she didn’t feel scared to fall and high that she couldn’t touch the ground! Beside the playground there is also a small splash pad.
Location: 1350 Beatrice St. E, Oshawa
Lakeview Park is definitely the most epic and well-known park in Durham Region. The playground features a huge climbing structure with a tall tube slide. There are also ziplines, a variety of swings (saucer, inclusive, tandem, etc) and an accessible area with ramps and accessible flooring. The accessible area has a smaller play structure that is great for toddlers. We also love the large climbing web that connects to its own separate slide. The playground is located beside the beach, a splash pad and a concession stand!
Location: 55 Lakeview Park Ave, Oshawa
