This year’s Must-Visit Edmonton Playgrounds list was made possible thanks to the generous support of Park N Play Design!
1. Parc Reunis
- 72 Street & 52 Avenue, Beaumont
- THE BEST new slide in the Edmonton Area! The tower is one of three great new wooden playgrounds set along the trail system in this new Beaumont neighbourhood.
- 6015 – 118 Avenue, Edmonton
- Two awesome and unique rope climbers, a Zipline Spinner, two sets of tandem swings, diggers, a ramped wall… I could go on and on. Truly Awesome!
- 13325 – 89 Street, Edmonton
- The slide tower is a showstopper, as is the natural playground, but don’t snooze on the amazing spray park, toddler park and big kid park. This one is massive, with something for everyone!
- 14313 – 92 Avenue, Edmonton
- The first full-sized Victory Wall in Western Canada! This one scored points for having two super slides, an awesome obstacle course and being across the field from the older-but-still awesome Parkview Community Playground.
- Maple Road & 8 Street NW, Edmonton
- The biggest, and most unique, rope climber around – this one is like nothing you’ve seen before! And it’s not just for climbing – it can be monkey bars, a slide, and so much more! You’ll also find a ramped playground, swings and a merry-go-round at this new playground.
- 3310-107 Avenue, Edmonton
- Edmonton’s newest Zipline Playground! Rundle heights has an outstanding obstacle course, a toddler park with a beautiful butterfly rope climber, a mushroom-topped umbrella spinner, and THE COOLEST spider rope climber! (can you see it in the photo?) Check the orange and red hopping stools – fans of Spider Man will LOVE this park!
- 4 Cunningham Road, St. Albert
- The first fully inclusive playground in St. Albert! This playground includes a sensory seat, ground-level accessories and musical features, and a ramped main structure all set in rubber base! The rope climber and slide tower offer great challenges too!
- Hearthstone Blvd, Sherwood Park
- Sherwood Park’s FIRST Zipline Playground, this park is set just north of Highway 16 in one of Sherwood Park’s new neighbourhoods. Go for the zipline, stay for the awesome climber tower, slides and gymnastics features! (Keep an eye on this one – it’s going to have a pretty spectacular new neighbour very soon!!!)
- 9844 – 110 Street, Edmonton
- Cool climbers, super slides, and just a touch of risky play – all under a canopy of mature trees! This one also has swings, cute bug bouncers and the coolest rainbow drums!
10. Rondeau Park
- Rondeau Road, St. Albert
- This small-but-mighty natural playground packs a lot of fun into a small space. We love the playhouse, the two different options for log jam climbers and most of all, the giant rope glider swing!
- 5704 Mill Woods Road S, Edmonton
- From the treehouse-themed main structure (with awesome super slide) to the well-designed play circuit for balance and agility, this playground has a great layout. We also love the dish spinner, imaginative play area, and all the activity prompts on the painted path that surrounds the park!
- 9538 – 103a Avenue, Edmonton
- Aside from being a really cool playground, this one makes our list for two big reasons: First, it’s a great example of a well-done inclusive playground with rubber base throughout and a lot of ground-level elements. Second, it provides a much-needed playground for kids in our inner city.
13. Legacy Park
- 10005 – 102 Street, Fort Saskatchewan
- A beautiful natural playground tucked back off the riverside trails in Fort Saskatchewan. This playground is just a few pieces of equipment set in and along a small grove of trees. It makes our list for being a perfect spot for being the perfect place to launch kids into an afternoon of imaginative play!
- 7512 – 144 Avenue, Edmonton
- The inclusive playground at Father Leo Green School packs a lot of options into a small playground footprint! There is a ramped main structure, an extensive obstacle course section, a variety of ground-level fun – and it’s all set in a base of rubber and turf!
