Project Details

Calvin Christian School in Hamilton, Ontario wanted to create a new playground, designed for inclusive play so all members of their community could have the opportunity to play. We helped them design a nationally recognized playground, accredited as a National Demonstration Site for Inclusivity.

This playground features some of our most popular playground equipment such as the Rock N Raft, Rock Climbing Wall, and the ShadowPlay Flower.

We included the ShadowPlay Flower is a fun piece accessible playground equipment that adds imaginative and inclusive play value to the playground, providing a wide range of sensory, cognitive, and motor skill benefits while adding an elevated aesthetic to the overall playground design. The Flower allows children of all ages and abilities to capture the sun’s light and create playful shadows on the ground below. As a user turns the handle near the base, the panels rotate and cast a rainbow of colours below.

We worked closely with the community to bring this playground to life, including students from Hamilton Christian District High School‘s Venture Program which is dedicated to helping students earn practical workplace experiences as part of their curriculum.

The playground was completed and ready for play in October 2019. In an article showcasing the grand opening, school principal, Arn Boonstra said:

“Our school mission is ‘Equipping to Shine,’ and we really want to equip students of all abilities with the opportunity to shine,…This new playground offers that opportunity!”
