This is one of our favourite spots to play in Trenton. St. Peter Catholic School is an awesome play area for toddlers through to school-aged kids. There are two playgrounds available – one is most suitable for toddlers & preschoolers and the other larger playground is fun for school-aged children, although it also includes features suitable for toddlers and young kids. The preschool play area also has a pretend jeep and a sand pit, which is covered by a big canopy. Surrounding the playgrounds are soccer fields, basketball hoops and a running track. There is something to entertain kids of every age and families could spend a significant amount of time here without getting bored.
We visit here often and Lennon (almost 3 years old) is a big fan of both playgrounds. He loves the pretend play that is encouraged by the submarine viewers, jeep and store-front booths. He is also able to independently access both play structures as both include stairs. The larger playground is probably best suited to children ages 3 and up as the stairs are a bit steep for very little one. For the school-aged kids, the variety of more challenging climbers will keep them occupied. And be sure to bring a soccer or basketball for older kids or for when the kids want a break from the playground.
Lennon absolutely loves to play on the running track. If you are feeling more adventurous, there is also a small wooded area beside (just to the east of) the running track where kids can do a little bit of nature exploration. There is definitely no shortage of things to do at St. Peter Catholic School!!
