It’s got to be the most famous playground out there! If you haven’t experienced it yourself, you must have at least seen pictures of it on Facebook. Queenston Park’s Playground in Coquitlam has got to be the coolest playground ever. Habitat Systems Inc is the mastermind of that ingenious playground. Seriously, a playground built onto the side of a hill? That should be a must in every community.

We realize that not everyone in Metro Vancouver has the means or interest in trekking out to Coquitlam to play at Queenston Park (though your kids will seriously thank you for driving them there), so we’ve partnered with Habitat Systems Inc to give you a look-see at the other playgrounds they have constructed around Metro Vancouver. You might as well start packing picnic lunches now because you are about to spend the summer months checking out all sorts of new play facilities!
