We worked with Parkdale School in Hamilton, Ontario to build a new school playground for the community. The park is designed based on our national demonstration site program, Play On, which incorporates the six key elements of play to promote fitness and help children reach moderate to vigorous levels of physical activity by providing features that have graduated levels of challenge. The six key elements include: spinning, sliding, swinging, climbing, brachiating and balancing.
A neat feature in this park is our Tandem Expression Swing, which encourages face to face and eye to eye contact while swinging. It's a great way to promote inter-generational play!
