Kilburn Park Description

Kilburn Park immediately drew my attention because I lived on Kilburn Rd. for a few years as a kid. I can’t believe it took me 5 years of doing playground profiles to visit Kilburn Park.

The smaller structure is great for younger kids. It is only two steps off the ground and has a small slide. While it isn’t a racer slide with two separate slide areas, it is wide enough for two small children. On the platform are a steering wheel and spinners.

Kilburn Park Small Structure

Leading from the smaller structure to the big structure are small stepping stools. However, I think the last step might be too big from the stools to the bigger structure ladder.

The larger structure is great for older kids. It has a twisty slide and side by side racer slides. A broken bridge connects the slides to the monkey bars.

Kilburn Park - Large Structure

The monkey bars connect the larger structure to the climbing ladders. The platform by the climbing ladders is the only section that you cannot access via rubber mats.
