Airdrie – Chinook Winds Regional Park
This playground and spray park are part of the huge Chinook Winds Regional Park complex. The park area is still being developed. There is currently a skate park, a number of baseball diamonds and a hockey rink with boards that contains basketball courts in the warmer months.
Airdrie – Nose Creek Park
We visited this park with my friend and her 4 young kids. The park is beautiful and we all had great morning. There’s lot of space for picnics and the creek and pond give it a little something different from your average park.
Nanton, AB – Highway #2 at 17th Street – 1729 – 21st Avenue
We’ve passed the Bomber Command Museum of Canada (also known as the Nanton Air Museum and the Lancaster Museum of Canada) and have always wanted to check it out. This Father’s day weekend, we decided that we had waited long enough.
Nanton, AB – 22nd Ave (Highway 2) & 18 St
This is one of the best playgrounds I’ve seen outside of Calgary. It’s right off the highway with plenty of parking. Gordie loved running over the sand and climbing on the firetruck climber. This would be a great stop if you are in the area or on the road.

We stopped in at Playtopia on a Thursday morning. It wasn’t busy when we got there, but it was hopping when we left. One of the first things you notice is that the play area is nice and open.
Inside the Galaxyland Amusement Park at the North side of the mall
Although this indoor playground is not free, it has much more in common with a place like Stir Crazy than a mall play place. We thought that $6 was pretty reasonable for how big it is. It is really big though and could be easy to loose track of your kids if they are small and you are not interested in climbing up with them.
