Awesome Playgrounds in Calgary that Require Admission

Calgary Playgrounds That Require Admission
  • When I create my list of Calgary’s best playgrounds, I usually leave off any playgrounds that require you to pay admission to access them. But there are some truly fantastic playgrounds inside the perimeter of one of Calgary’s attractions.

Telus Spark

Telus Spark’s Brainasium Outdoor Park is arguably Calgary’s best playground. It features Calgary’s tallest slide, natural playground features, playground elements that also teach science lessons and more. They have mixed flooring giving different tactile experiences for your feet.
Requires regular admission or membership to Telus Spark.

Heritage Park

Heritage Park has an excellent train playground located at the back of the park. It has accessible flooring so you don’t have to worry about pea gravel dust. Younger kids will love the ramps and musical panels and older kids will love using the playground as a backdrop for imaginative play.
Requires regular admission or membership to Heritage Park.
