This summer, it’s time to get out and play. Calgary Recreation has some FREE playground programs for the summer of 2022.
Mobile Adventure Playground
The City of Calgary has a mobile adventure playground that spends the summer travelling between city parks. The pilot program was so successful that over 2000 children visited the playgrounds over the summer. It has continued on and expanded into more playgrounds. The adventure playground rotates all summer through a variety of parks. See here for more information.
Park n’Play and Stay n’Play
Park n’ Play is a free outdoor drop-in program for children aged 6 to 12. You can normally drop your kids off from 10 am – 3:30 pm and they’ll keep busy with loads of activities, games, and crafts. If your child is younger than six, they can take part in Stay n’ Play, a free outdoor drop-in program for children aged 3 to 5. Adult participation in this program is mandatory, so parents or caregivers must accompany kids throughout the duration of the program.

Wetland Wonders is a free outdoor program aimed at children aged 5 to 12. Kids will learn about all the wonders of wetlands by exploring these natural spaces and the wildlife that call them home. Discover why wetlands are important and get an up-close view of the amazing critters that live below the surface during a pond dip. This program runs on Wednesday afternoons in July and August at Ralph Klein Park. Registration is required and participants must be accompanied by an adult.
The Unplug n’Play events bring fun and entertainment to your community. Enjoy an evening of entertainment with family, friends, and neighbours, but be sure to reserve your spot online 7 days in advance. Drop-in spaces will also be accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis
