Flyover Park – Beauty in a Lost Space

One of the most popular playground posts I’ve ever done wasn’t even an Edmonton Playground – it was Calgary’s Flyover Park! Photos by Edmonton Playgrounds.

It may be the most popular Calgary playground post I’ve ever made! The story behind Flyover Park is truly an incredible one. Described as “finding beauty in a lost space”, this playground is a community initiative brought to life – turning a dingy underpass into something wonderful for a neighbourhood. The project was a collaboration between a group of 6th grade students, University of Calgary Landscape Architecture Students and Stantec. They brought to life an incredible futuristic vision in one of Calgary’s oldest neighbourhoods! Learn more about the project HERE.

This rubber-base playground features the longest roller slide we’ve found, as well as a series of other slides and unique climber built into a hill. We love the “bamboo jungle” of climbing poles, the bubble dots for hopping and all the swings. (a “friendship” tandem swing, a skateboard swing and 2 standard swings). There’s also a games area, with ping-pong, tether ball, bocce and more!
