Ziplines are making a comeback in Calgary. Ziplines are a little different from the similar, more common ‘gliders’ – ziplines have a rope that hangs down that you can either sit or stand on. Here’s a list of the ones I’ve found so far.
Carrington – Symons Valley Parkway & 14 St NW
The zipline is just one of the awesome features at this playground at the North end of the city.
Westwinds/Castleridge – 233 Castleridge Blvd. NE.
There are two long wire ziplines at this popular NE park. This is a hugely popular regional park so expect the ziplines to usually have lineups. That being said, your kids will probably think it’s worth the wait.
Cranston’s Riverstone – Cranbrook Hill and Cranbrook Way SE
This zipline at this small park is longer than most of this style.
Legacy – Legacy Parade and Legacy Row SE
Cute little park that even bigger kids will like because of the zipline!
Walden – Walgrove Blvd and Walgrove Gardens SE
Great park for a wide variety of ages including a zipline and great shade.
12350 84 St SE
This park has a brand new playground (July 2018) that includes a long wire zipline.
52nd Avenue and 21st St. SW. (next to Lord Shaughnessy School)
This playground includes a lot of natural playground features and a wire zipline.
8. Springbank Hill Community Park
Springbank Hill – 7541 26 Ave SW (limited street parking)
This park is primarily a community meeting space and natural area rather than a playground, but it does have a zipline!
Livingston – Livingston – Lucas Crescent and Lucas Parade NW
This playground was designed to be accessible to kids with hearing or vision impairments and also includes a fun zipline.
5600 Centre St N
This inclusive playground has a lot of fun features including a double zipline – one which has an accessible seat with back support and a harness.
1827 68 St. S.E. (south of 17th ave between 60th and 68th)
Elliston Park has an accessible zipline – it has a seat with a harness and back support.
Glamorgan – 4331 41 Ave SW
St. Andrew School has a double zipline. One has an accessible seat, however you do have to walk through pea gravel to get to it.
7305 24 St. SW
North Glenmore Park has a double zipline. One has an accessible seat with a harness and back support.
