1. Somerset Park Inclusive Playground

Somerset- 999 Somerset Dr. S.W

The new inclusive playground and spray park has turned Somerset Park from a good park to a great park. The park has so much to offer and is a great place for a wide age range. It is one of the best all around family fun parks in the city.

The playground has some really great features such as the cool rope climber which will be a hit with bigger kids and the ground level merry-go-round which all kids will love.

2. Edworthy Park Inclusive Playground

South Access – 5050 Spruce Dr. S.W. (Bow Tr. & Spruce Dr. S.W.)
North Access –  Shaganappi Trail and 16th Avenue.

Edworthy Park has long been one of Calgarian’s favourite parks. The park is located along the river and has lot of trees and picnic spaces. It is now even better with this new inclusive playground that fits right into the scenic backdrop.

3. South Glenmore Park Inclusive Playground

South Glenmore Park just keeps getting better. This Variety Children’s Park was one of the first accessible playgrounds in the city. In recent years the park has gained a bike park as well as a music garden a short distance away from the main playground.

Last year, the main play area next to the spray park was replaced with a new inclusive playground. The only downside to this park is its popularity which can make it crowded and hard to park, particularly on hot days.

4. Hidden Hut Inclusive Playground

10504 Hidden Valley Dr NW

This playground is excellent and really well thought out. It provides exciting and inclusive play opportunities for kids of all ages and abilities. They have managed to include so many different elements in the space and the flow is great. A destination playground for sure.

5. North Glenmore Park Inclusive Playground

7305 24 St. SW

This playground is located in a popular picnic park along the North side of the Glenmore reservoir.

There is a large variety of equipment that will appeal to both little kids and bigger kids including a double zipline and musical features.

6. Vivo Inclusive Playground

Country Village Rd NE & Country Village Way NE

Located near Vivo recreation centre, this new playground is a great new place to play. It boasts some cool climbing features, a ground-level merry-go-round and a covered picnic area nearby.

7. Elliston Park Inclusive Playground

1827 68 St. S.E. (south of 17th ave between 60th and 68th)

Elliston Park is the home of Globalfest and is now also the home of a fun new inclusive playground. The park is a great place for a family picnic and the playground has a lot of popular features, like interesting climbing equipment, musical instruments and a giant web climber.

8. Ramsay Inclusive Playground

Ramsay – Macdonald Ave SE and Bellevue Ave SE

One of the coolest new playgrounds in Calgary, Ramsay Inclusive Playground is spread across two different tiers connected by an accessible pathway. The playground has really great views of downtown.

9. Ted Harrison School Inclusive Playground

Taradale – 215 Taravista Way NE

The setting of this playground isn’t amazing but the playground itself is pretty great. The playground is fully fenced, has a huge ramp system and a interesting web climber in the centre of the play area.

10. Sandy Beach Inclusive Playground

Altadore – 4500 14A St. SW

The setting of this playground is lovely and the park also has great access to the elbow river. The playground has fun musical features, a fun 4 person seated spinner and a variety of swings.
Note: the parking lot here is fairly small for the popularity of the park

  1. I think Shouldice is an inclusive playground as well! I really love that playground – it’s big, but low if I remember correctly.

    Hidden Hut has been on our list a lot lately- I really find the inclusive playgrounds are easier for toddlers.
