Overall Assessment: This is one of Calgary’s prettiest playgrounds with a consistent woodland theme throughout providing a beautiful backdrop for imaginative play. The school age climber is set up in a loop at the top so kids can run all the way around without having to come back down. This would be a great playground for a keep off the ground game (like grounders). It’s also great for little ones with the steps and stools and pour in place recycled tire flooring which makes it easy for them to run from one place to another. This is one of my favorite finds this year – I highly recommend popping down to check it out.
