Gordie’s Review (2 years old)– The tractor!
Age Range: children must be under 48” tall to play
Footwear: socks. Socks can be purchased at a booth nearby if you forget.
Safety Features/Concerns: There is not great sightlines from most of the chairs and the doorway is wide and unblocked.
Play Area Features: Toddler area with small slide, panels and foam blocks; large 2 level climber with rope bridges, steps, twisty slide, bumpers
Seating: There are some chairs inside the entrance to the play area.
Overall Assessment: I had heard that the new Calgary Farmers’ Market location had a play area, but didn’t expect it to be anything like this. Rather than the collection of panels I had thought it would be, it is like a smaller version of an indoor play centre.
Gordie had a great time. His favorite thing was climbing into the tractor on the 2nd level and peeking down at me. We went on a Thursday and even then it was fairly busy.
I’d recommend trying to eat before noon if you are there for lunch as it is a very popular location with the employees from the local businesses.
This is definitely a great place to take the kids if you are wanting to go to a farmer’s market or want to go to a food court with some choices that are different from the usual.
