Strathmore is located 40 minutes East of Calgary making it perfect for a day trip.
Westmount School Playgrounds
220 Wheatland Trail Strathmore
Instead of removing the old playgrounds, Westmount School just keeps adding new ones. In addition to the new playground shown below, you will also find three other playgrounds, a natural play area and a little bike track painted on the tarmac.
Brentwood Elementary School Playgrounds
95 Brentwood Dr W, Strathmore
Another great place for playground hopping, Brentwood School has 4 playgrounds from different eras including the amazing new one shown in the picture below.
Kinsmen Park Playground and Spray Park
Lakeside Blvd, Strathmore
Kinsmen Park is located in the heart of Strathmore surrounding Kinsmen Lake. It is a lovely place for a picnic and has a spray park in the summer months as well as a playground across the lake.
Places to Eat
410 Lakeshore Blvd – Strathmore
I always like finding a good local place for lunch while we are out of the city and Kim’s Cafe fits the bill perfectly. It is kid friendly with high chairs, a solid kids menu and cups with lids. The interior is welcoming, the home-style food is good and the service is friendly.
126 2 Ave, Strathmore
Rocky’s Bakery is known for their donuts – traditional flavours with real icing on top. They have other baked items available as well as pre-prepared (but reportedly delicious) sandwiches and soups.
