Overall assessment: This park was built in 2010 with the assistance of the Parks Foundation Calgary‘Building Playgrounds and Communities’ grant program. This is one of the best playgrounds I have found so far in the NE. There are tons of different climbing features and there is a lot of opportunity for moving around the play area while keeping your feet off the ground. Gordie loved the merry-go-round spinner which is a great feature for big and little kids. Even at two there were so many ways he can play with it – while it was spinning he tried holding on to the edge while standing, sitting without holding on and walking across the center. This year he also found out he could climb up the ropes.
