This summer, it’s time to get out and play. Calgary Recreation has some FREE playground programs for the summer of 2021.
Community Nature Adventure Playground
The Community Nature Adventure Playground program is a FREE drop-in program for kids of all ages. Kids can come out and play at a variety of locations around the city, using natural elements such as tree stumps, branches, twigs, rocks and other loose parts materials to inspire active and creative outdoor play. Onsite play ambassadors will be on-site to inspire play. Parents are encouraged to stay and watch their children’s imaginations soar in this new adventure space.
The entire family is invited to bring their lawn chairs and enjoy FREE entertainment from the City of Calgary. This is a drop-in program but you can also reserve a spot seven days in advance. There will be a limited number of participants accepted and walk-ups will be accepted as spots are available.
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. Registration is required and participants must be accompanied by an adult.
