The BEST Playground in Alberta?
The BEST playground in Alberta? We think this is IT and it’s all thanks to one incredible piece of equipment – the Zipline Swing! We found the Zipline Swing in the teeny, tiny town of Marlboro, Alberta! I can’t imagine having more fun at a playground than we did at this one! The Zipline swing is my new favourite piece of playground equipment – all four of us tried it and loved it!
The playground also has 3 great slides, climbers, spinners and swings (3 standard, 1 baby and 1 saucer.) This playground is based in wood chips. There is an outhouse and a beautiful picnic area – plus the Marlboro Eagle Eye pump park! Yellowhead County is home to a series of asphalt Pump Tracks, including one in Wildwood, Alberta!
Marlboro is located west of Edson, about 2.5 hours from Edmonton. It’s a perfect road trip pit stop on a trip to Jasper! We did not see any stores or restaurants in Marlboro – something you might want to keep in mind for planning purposes.
How to find the Marlboro playground
I’ve been asked several times for an exact address, but I haven’t been able to find one. I do guarantee, however, that if you exit Highway 16 and enter Marlboro, you will find this park! (Marlboro is just that small!) Use the map below to find the playground. Marlboro is located on the north side of Highway 16, about 20 minutes west of Edson.
