Horse Hill School

Older wooden playgrounds are becoming the exception – but this brightly coloured old faithful, captured in golden hour sunshine, reminded me of how much play value they still offer. This is the playground at Horse Hill School, northeast of Edmonton. My kids climbed and slid, swung and flipped, and requested “just 5 more minutes” more than once, even though bedtime had come and gone.

I get excited when we find new and unique and innovative playgrounds, but I get just as excited when we uncover a fun little hidden gem like this one. Horse Hill School playground is based in sand, it has 4 regular swings, a paved basketball court and a huge green space for exploring.
