A look at the evolution of Calgary's playgrounds
These aren't your parents' playgrounds.
Calgary's outdoor play areas are pushing the boundaries on safety, interactivity and, most importantly, fun, say local experts.
"The best ones for this are ones that are unique, so kids can ask for them by name," said Dana Wheatley, an experiential playground expert and mom of three young children. "A great example of this is Parkdale's Helicopter playground."
Wheatley runs the popular website CalgaryPlaygroundReview.com, which highlights many of the city's best playgrounds.
