Esquimalt Adventure Park is in the seaside community of Esquimalt, one of thirteen communities that form the Capital Regional District of British Columbia. This two thousand square meter sized park is packed with a lot of fun equipment. In the summer, it’s a water spray park. There is a wonderful children’s playground. Right beside that is a set of play equipment for the smaller children. The playground areas are surfaced with a rubber matting while the splash water area is cement with drains. There is an outdoor fitness circuit with eight pieces for a workout. This area is surfaced with gravel. There are toilets and change rooms. The picnic tables are found near the grass covered areas. There are also a few benches to rest upon. All of this is beside the Esquimalt Recreation Center. The entire park is fenced with several gates: three along Fraser Street while another provides access from the parking area. The park is landscaped along the fence line with small plantings, shrubs and small trees. Memorial Park, Highrock Cairn Park, Bullen Park, Saxe Point Park, Freeman Ken Hill Park and Foster Park are nearby.
