Bain Park in Trenton is home to an awesome playground that is set right beside the beautiful Afghanistan Repatriation Memorial. The playground is suitable for all ages, and includes some accessible features. Surrounding the playground are soccer fields, baseball diamonds, a walking path along the Bay of Quinte and a large gazebo with many picnic tables.
Bain Park is located at the very bottom of RCAF Rd, south of Dundas St and directly on the Bay of Quinte.

Bain Park is set directly on the Bay of Quinte, which provides beautiful views of the water. The Playground is right beside the Afghanistan Repatriation Memorial and a large gazebo with many picnic tables. There is a walking path and benches alongside the water. There is also a soccer field and baseball diamond in the park.
Nothing directly around the playground, however there are picnic tables under the nearby gazebo and benches along the waterfront walking path.
There is a paved pathway leading to the playground’s ramp. The ramp leads up to several fun play features including a steering wheel, spinning gears and a sign language alphabet chart.
Bain Park playground is a great spot for toddlers. With the ramp, wide stairs and smaller slides, even very early walkers can play here independently. Lennon (almost 3 years old) loved the race car steering wheel, spinning gears and little maze on the wall. For older kids, there are some unique features including a geometric rock-wall climber (see photos below) and large octagonal-shaped monkey bars.
Lennon loved exploring the Afghanistan Repatriation Memorial, which is right beside the playground. There is a tank on display, which he loved. We also went for a short walk down to the water where there were beautiful views and lots of trees & shoreline shrubs for kids to explore.
On a warm, sunny day Bain Park would be a beautiful spot to bring a picnic and spend a few hours playing with kids of all ages.
