Overall assessment: This playground is one of the coolest playgrounds I have seen lately. It has a very attractive prairie theme with a grain elevator, train and dump truck climbers. Irricana is a small town located approximately 25 minutes East of Airdrie. If you’re looking to go on a small travel adventure, this playground is definitely worth a trip. The slide is taller than most and inside the grain elevator you can climb up and peek out the highest windows. Behind the playground you can see trains go by which kids usually love.
