Nicky’s Review (9 years old): “I like how there was a swing and instruction section down the hill and more of a play area up the hill.”
Robbie’s Review (6 years old): “It was good. I liked the orange slide.”

Age Range: 2-12 years

Lower level – musical features; 4 person bouncer with back support; saucer swing and tandem swing.
Log and rock features on the hill between the playgrounds.

Accessibility: This playground is unusual in that only it is spread across two levels but both levels are accessible. The flooring in both play areas has accessible flooring throughout, and there is a pathway connecting the two levels.

The main climber has a two level ramp and steps to make access easier. There is also an accessible ground level merry-go-round and ground level musical features.

The tandem swing doesn’t have an accessible seat but both swing seats have reclined back support. The 4 person bouncer has back support and the saucer swing can be used lying down or along with another person.

Shade: There are some trees near the play areas.
Seating: There are a couple benches and a picnic table near the play area.

Overall assessment:

If you are looking for a new inner city playground to check out, this is the playground for you.

It has a great view of downtown and the two tiered nature of the playground makes it really fun to explore. It has some really cool features like the ground level merry-go-round and the tandem swing that kids of all ages will love.

Rainbow Trout Art

Just round the corner from the playground you can also find the Rainbow Trout artwork.

If you look on the sidewalk across the parking lot you will find a rainbow fish which is the best place to view it so the pieces line up perfectly.

  1. My kids aged 2 and 3 were so excited to go on the orange slide. Accessibility to the orange slide is where this playground falls short. The only way up to the coveted slide is to climb a chain ladder. This was difficult for my kids who were fully capable of enjoying the slide.

    The other little slide is great with easy stair access for continuous toddler fun.

    You can also get ice cream across the street and drive up the hill for the postcard view of Calgary.

    By the amount of neighbourhood activity at the playground. It’s a hot. There is also a 2 hour parking lot and 2 hour street parking for access. It is also right off the bike path.
