Mobile Adventure Playgrounds: A Different Way to Play!

The City of Calgary hosts free outdoor Mobile Adventure Playgrounds in various locations for children to 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. Onsite play ambassadors are there to inspire play and keep the playground safe, but not directly supervise the children. Parents are encouraged to stay and watch their children play and see how their imaginations soar in this ever-changing adventure space. Locations and dates available at calgary.ca/play.
