track – Asphalt & Gravel
It’s an easy route in Saint-Leonard that has a relatively big hill that makes it interesting in terms of view and for light hill training. It has 2 soccer fields, 3 basketball courts and offcourse a boce field for the elderly. The park route is well managed with a clean park house and plenty of fun for kids in the 2 playgrounds or the water games area. I recommend it even thugh it’s not huge.

Review of Parc Delorme

It is considered a medium park at 1.37Km, but don't let the size fool you, it seems much bigger because of the nice hill in the middle and terrain design. You would have to do at least 3 laps to get a good workout done.

We have gravel roads with little rocks, that is in excellent condition and asphalt in between and going up on the hill, overall in great shape.

There aren't many trees but they are well placed to give you shade and a feeling of a bigger park. The hill in the middle gives a nice touch to this park as well, they even have a little amphi-theatre for shows and movies at night.

The standard 2 water fountains and bathrooms at the park house which are in good condition, they also just installed outdoor trianing equipment with new gear i haven't seen before. It's also very close to 2 busstops Jarry and Robert boulevards, and has plenty of free parking on the street.

One of the prettiest little parks in Saint-Leonard, i strongly recommend it for a morning jog or 5K training.
 

As a bonus I’m also rating the playgrounds in or very close to the park i’m running in, since i’m a new papa and i know how important playgrounds are to new parents and especially their kids, so here goes:

Kids playground review
Size of playgroundwww.dyerware.comwww.dyerware.comwww.dyerware.comwww.dyerware.comwww.dyerware.com
For smaller kids 1-5 the baby park is a bit small and crowded at times, the one for bigger kids is of medium size and can hold a good group.
Quality of playgroundwww.dyerware.comwww.dyerware.comwww.dyerware.comwww.dyerware.comwww.dyerware.com
The little kids park is in great condition, a little old but working, the bigger kids side needs some repair, but could still provide plenty of fun. The water games are in verry good condition and provide plenty of fun for all kids.

My little 2yo often gets bored at the little park, and wants to do other things quickly, the water games are really fun tho!
