August 16, 2010: The playground's older structure is still in the playground (but the date/manufacturer label has been removed), and a newer one seems to have been added recently.
Moss Park also has a splash pad, which worked poorly almost from the beginning and still works poorly now. On a sunny Sunday afternoon in August, there were no children in sight. Four rough-looking adults were sitting in the shade by the wading pool, and three pigeons were sitting on the new wood-fibre surfacing underneath the new playground structure.
