Playgrounds and Splash Pads

Fort Erie’s seventeen uniquely themed playgrounds offer a range of play experiences for a variety of ages. Many of the Town’s playgrounds have been provided through community fundraising efforts and donations, such as the Bay Beach Playground (Ridgeway Lions Club) Corporal Albert Storm Playground in Crystal Beach Waterfront Park (Crystal Beach Firefighters Association), the Saturn Playground in Ridgeway Lions Park (Saturn of St. Catharines), the Stevensville Mini Park playground (Stevensville Kinsmen and Kinettes) and the Goderich Street Park playground (Buffalo Fort Erie Public Bridge Authority).

Accessibility and inclusiveness are a priority in the Town's playgrounds, and all new or replaced playgrounds are designed in consultation with the Fort Erie Accessibility Committee.

The installation of new playground equipment in Black Creek Park and the replacement of existing equipment in Stevensville Mini Park are being planned for the spring of 2020. Community input will be sought during this process, through a Dot-Mocracy Open House - at which playground users are invited to identify their favorite playground equipment. The Open House will be advertised in the newspaper, through social media, on this webpage, and property owners within 150 meters of the playground will receive a mailed invitation. Playground designs are also reviewed by the Fort Erie Accessibility Advisory Committee, to ensure inclusivity and accessibility, and compliance with the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act.

  • Bowen Road Park
  • Crystal Beach Waterfront Park
  • Energy Field
