Help Build a Playground In Our Neighbourhood

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!

Latest News:

  • The original build date of August 21/22 was delayed as the supplier of rubber for the surface of the playground ran out!
