Overall assessment:

This playground is very different from other playgrounds in Calgary from the equipment itself to the position of the playground on a hill. Bigger kids will love challenging themselves on the ropes and logs.

East Village Playground

Really young kids will love trying to walk around the uneven ground and climbing up on the stumps and platform. And everyone will love the roller slide. My kids loved this playground and didn’t want to leave when it was time to go. The playground isn’t huge but it can accommodate quite a few children and it is definitely unique.

This playground is walking distance to St. Patrick’s Island, Fort Calgary and the East Village Simmons building that houses Charbar, Phil and Sebastian’s Coffee Roasters and Sidewalk Citizen Bakery.
