Saint-Jérôme's Multisports park, now completely redesigned, features a playground with an exciting obstacle course for children and terraced row seating, surfaced with synthetic turf. The playground boasts adventure modules, a trampoline, a climbing wall and slide, as well as water games for the enjoyment of the young and not so young. Accessible to users with reduced mobility, the playground also includes some modular games that can be used by people with disabilities.
The Multisports Park is already very popular with soccer and football players and runners who use the wooded trails. The City of Saint-Jérôme announced future plans for the park that will include outdoor rinks, an indoor soccer complex and a gymnastics palestra. « We wanted to transform this municipal park and create a designated sports area for the citizens of our four sectors. The park will group Saint-Jérôme's major sports facilities.» states Mayor Stéphane Maher.
