Joan Carr School (Edmonton, Ab)
A new school in south Edmonton that was granted $250,000 grant from the govenrnment and fundraising for the balance of an EPIC accessible playground. State of the art, enviormentally builit new building ignited the design to be based on the same prinicipals. Creating a space that has EPIC and INNOVATIVE events unlike anywhere else in the city. Carefully selected color pallet to compliment the stunning and inspring new school building.
"The new playground (September 2023) at Joan Carr School packs a lot of fun into a small space! The layout is unique and fun, with two tall slide towers that both connect to a rope bridge leading out to a tall rope climber!There are only a few accessory pieces at this playground – one is a small disc spinner, which is the first we know of in Edmonton. The others are swings – four standard and one saucer swing.Unique elements at this playground include a panel game that reads “The answer to your question is hidden in the stars”. Kids can ask a question and choose a star to spin to reveal the answer! There is also a fun measurement tool to check your height.The only way to get up to the top of each of the towers, and the slides, is by using panel climbers. The climbers are quite easy for kids, but a little trickier for adults to manoeuver around!"
