We LOVE Playgrounds!

Hi, I’m Jill Footz! I’m a twin mom, a runner, a tv producer by day and a playground enthusiast by night.

A little bit about us – My girls and I love exploring our city and finding the best Edmonton Playgrounds, and we love to share our findings. Edmonton Playgrounds is a labour of love that probably started in my head when the girls were just infants – and came to fruition in spring of 2020.

To date we’ve visited more than 390 Edmonton Playgrounds – and you’ll find every one of them on this site! (Hint: use the MAP!) We also make a point to visit playgrounds when we travel – and we take in all the festivals, venues and activities around Edmonton too. Through our Instagram page, @EdmontonPlaygrounds, we’ve connected with so many like-minded families who love adventure, exploration and outdoor activities in Edmonton! We love sharing our experiences and hearing about yours!

My Kids Can Fly

In September 2022, I was honoured to be asked to present at the first-ever Pecha Kucha night, put on by the Arts & Culture Council of Strathcona County. I gave a talk called “My Kids Can Fly”, which shares the story of how and why I started Edmonton Playgrounds.
