Overall Assessment: This playground was built this year (2010) with help from the Foresters, Kaboom! organization, Parks Foundation Calgary and City of Calgary Parks. This playground is so new the landscaping still isn’t finished. It looks like the new playground will be well used as there was a bunch of kids there in the short time we were there. The playground is not huge and isn’t worth driving too far but is a great addition to the neighborhood.
