This important project will support the creation of a nature-based children’s playground at the Ralph Klein Park in Calgary, which already features a man-made wetland, water edge trails, an urban orchard and an award-winning Environmental Education Centre.

The new playground will be built entirely from natural materials and will include log and timber climbing structures, hill slides, water and sand play features and arbor hide-outs. This impressive nature-based playground in the regional park will engage an entirely new audience of visitors from the surrounding southeast Calgary communities including Shepard, Mahogany, McKenzie Towne and Auburn Bay.
