Grandfather Jim Quigley tried to keep up while 7-year old Ayla Trowbridge and her 4-year-old sister Sierra enjoyed the playground at Davies Street Park.

Fairview fun times

The recently opened Davies Street Park has proved to be a popular destination for families.

The recently completed Davies Street Park has proved to be a popular attraction for families, and on Wednesday afternoon kids and their parents were taking full advantage of the play equipment and the beautiful weather.

Grandfather Jim Quigley spent some time crawling around the domed play web with his granddaughters Ayla and Sierra Trowbridge, struggling to keep up as they monkeyed around. Four-year-old Avery Anderson also went for a climb with her father Grant.

Meanwhile Bella and Sebastien Donaldson hung out with their friend Calla Port and their dog Maybe, who practiced jumping for a stick with their mother Alicia.

The city is currently selling memorial picnic tables, benches and trees to help develop the park. Each one comes with perpetual care from the city. A table is $1200, a bench $850 and a tree $250. Parks manager Karen MacDonald said those interested in purchasing one can contact the city.
