Five locations through the city will be taking part in the moving playground, encouraging children to build, explore, create and play – spending those summer days encouraging children with a new way to play. Locations through the summer include:
- North Glenmore Park – 7305 Crowchild Tr. SW
- Canyon Meadows – 844 Cantabrian Dr. SW
- Canmore Park – 19 St. & Chicoutimi Dr. NW
- Riley Park – 800 12 St. NW
- Forest Lawn Athletic Complex – 4808 14 Ave. SE
Adventure playgrounds are dynamic spaces where children can explore, create, imagine and learn in their own way. They contain a variety of materials and loose parts such as boards, tires, tape and cardboard that children are free to use to build, demolish, assemble and change their environments as they desire.
On-site program staff will serve as play ambassadors, who will supervise but not direct or facilitate play. Parents are encouraged to watch their children play and see how their imaginations soar in this new adventure play space.
Playgrounds will be staffed between 10-4 pm with play ambassadors, and you can find the complete schedule for the adventure playgrounds at www.calgary.ca
