Summer 2022 Must-Visit Edmonton Playgrounds
Here it is – the only list you need for summer fun – the Summer 2022 Must-Visit Edmonton Playgrounds! These are 12 of the best playgrounds in Edmonton that all opened within the last calendar year. We think they’re all pretty great places to play for a day of summer fun in Edmonton! (Scroll to the bottom for a map of all 12 locations!)
1 – Rocketship Park – 122 St & 112 Ave.
The coolest rocket, the coolest climber – this one is just the coolest!
Be sure to check out our video tour of the amazing new climber at Rocketship Park!
2 – Baturyn Park – 10505-172 Ave.
Musical merry-go-round, mega rope climber, and an awesome obstacle course that even the teens will love! This playground also has a huge selection of swings including tandem, parent and baby, accessible, and standard. Spin the maypole with the rainbow suncatchers on top!
Uplands at Riverview West
3 – Uplands at Riverview West – 204 St & 25 Ave*
Bees, bugs, bears – all the critters are here! Plus the coolest tandem swings. (*Use my google map point for “Uplands at Riverview West” to find this one! The West part is crucial because there is a different playground on the east side of 199 street.)
4 – Kingsmeade Park – 255 Kingswood Blvd, St. Albert.
Super slides and the epic grand strand climber! This playground is half-rubber-base and half-sand, and has a good selection of swings, including an accessible swing, and a parent and baby generation swing.
5 – Caernarvon Playground – 11507-148 Ave.
That bear tho! Bonus points for having all rubber-base! We love the spring-mounted lady bug, the saucer swing and the natural rock-and-log agility area.
Father Michael Mireau School
6 – Father Michael Mireau School – 3010 Spence Wynd SW.
Edmonton’s newest Zipline Playground, plus super rope climbers and a great toddler area with one of the cutest little playgrounds around. This park also features the popular raft swing!
Shauna May Seneca School
7 – Shauna May Seneca School – 2130 Wonnacott Way SW.
Two words: Zipline Spinner! there’s also an incredible monkey-bar circuit built underneath the platform of the main structure, as well as a climbing dome, toddler park and tall rope merry-to-round. Can you find the bald eagle???
St Martin School
8 – St. Martin School – 11310-51 Ave.
The amazing grand strand climber is worth the trip alone, but this one also has slides, a playhouse and a bell tower! We love the variety of agility, balance and obstacle course equipment here, as well as the swings – standard and saucer versions!
Calder Community Playground / St. Edmund School
This is a two-fer as these two must-visit Edmonton playgrounds are just across the field from each other! Enjoy the curly slide at St Edmund and the obstacle course at Calder. Bonus points for this pair of playgrounds that both offer rubber base!
Jan Reimer School / Divine Mercy School
Another pair that share a field! Jan Reimer has the glamping tent and a monkey bar circuit, while Divine Mercy has musical instruments and the first universal swing we’ve found in Edmonton!
