We are rebuilding the playground across from the Killarney Aquatic Center on 29th street SW. Follow us here to find out updates on the progress and ways to get involved. 3 years ago, Calgary embarked on a couple of big programs to help improve communities and green spaces. ImagineParks identified playgrounds that were unsafe and a Community Investment Fund was created to support their replacement. The playground on 29th scored a 4/5 on the 5 point 'safety code' scale meaning it is high priority for the city.
A group of local parents have piggy backed the replacement and decided it was a great opportunity to not just replace but to improve the whole space and make it a better community hub for families.
This project has been setup as part of the Killarney-Glengarry Community Association to enable fundraising and engage the community to improve one of the local parks!
- The original build date of August 21/22 was delayed as the supplier of rubber for the surface of the playground ran out!
- But, the old playground is now gone and we are all set for installation on September 25 & 26 2015
- Thanks to everyone who has volunteered to help so far
- We are still looking for a few more volunteers to help inventory the supplies, document the install in photographs and help out with a launch party. If you think you can help, sign up online here or email Chelsea to find out more.
