Willoughby Community Park in Langley

If you’re looking for an amazing toddler playground, you NEED to check this one out!

The playground at Willoughby Community Park was a WIN with my 2 year old. He must’ve climbed up and slid down the tall swirly slide 20 times while we were there. And there are so many more things we love about this park:

  • The playground surface is made of soft, squishy turf
  • The playground is fenced almost all the way around. There is one small opening facing away from the parking lot
  • There is a set of stairs to get up to the tall swirly slide so even really little ones can get up independently
  • The swirly slide is super tall but not super fast so it’s both exciting & safe for toddlers
  • There is a smaller toddler structure with two shorter slides
  • A climbing web, rock wall & other fun climbing features for the bigger kids
  • Public bathrooms
  • Splash park for the hot summer months
  • Tons of sports fields and a sheltered picnic area

Willoughby Community Park is located in the 7700 block 202A Street in Langley.
