Overall assessment: This playground uses different equipment than I have seen elsewhere near Calgary. The web climber has panels on the outside that makes it double as a playhouse which I thought was brilliant. This playground is best for school-aged kids and older preschoolers, however my toddler amused himself happily the whole time we were there. The area will be lovely once it’s finished (although the park space looks pretty great already) but be aware of the construction when you go visit.
