Applewood – Applestone Park, Applewood Drive SE
This playground was newly installed last fall. It is a huge accessible playground with equipment suitable for kids of all ages and ability levels. Hands down one of Calgary’s best playgrounds. I would encourage everyone to make the trip to see it but especially if you have a child with special needs.

This beautiful park has two fantastic playgrounds both with accessible flooring. The preschool playground is inside a fenced area along with a spray park. The school-aged playground is just up the hill and has equipment that will challenge and entertain even your biggest kids.

This school playground features accessible flooring, a huge interconnected climber and bridges. Unlike many school playgrounds there is a separate climber for younger kids as well.
