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.
