Testimonial

It was an honour to be a part of the team that made the building of the Dragonfly Splash Park a reality for our community.   The choice to build a Splash Park met many of our local priorities around promoting physical activity, creating safe outdoor play environments for young children and promoting the community as a whole as family-centred.  The splash park has become a wonderful, fun place and its play value has exceeded my expectations from the first day it opened.

Kraft Heinz Project Play

The Kraft Heinz Project Play competition is on!  This fund helps to build better places to play in communities across Canada.  The Grand Prize winner receives $250,000 towards a recreational facility upgrade and the three finalists each receive $20,000.  In 2013, the Invermere Rotary Club won $25,000 for their new spray park.  Not only did Invermere receive a cheque for $25,000, but they also hosted the TSN crew members for a live broadcast and received $5,000 from former Dragon’s Den entrepreneur Brett Wilson.  The spray park was opened in 2015 and is one of the busiest water parks in the region.

Seattle Center Playground: Artists at Play

If you are planning a road trip with the kids this summer we highly recommend the “Artists at Play” Playground in the heart of the Seattle Center. The play space was designed for children of all ages and challenges a multitude of senses.  The park includes a 30-foot KOMPAN climbing tower and so many other unique activities that are sure to “wow” you.

The interactive musical instruments within the park were created by world famous sound inventor Trimpin. He created a multitude of activities that are incredibly brilliant: bronze plates that play notes when children throw stones at them;  a fence that plays notes and looks similar to a vertical xylophone; a letter tree that sings when someone turns the handle; and chimes that play when children swing.

The place space was designed to be accessible for people of all ages and abilities.  KOMPAN’S smaller climbing structure mimics the larger one but is designed for toddlers and preschoolers so everyone can be a part of the fun.

It’s well worth a trip to Seattle just to see this park!

Grand Opening of Penzer Park in Langley

Penzer Action Park in Langley is set to become a Canadian first as they bring extreme sports to the neighbourhood.  Parkour, skateboarding, rock climbing, are just some of the adventure activities being offered at this public park.  Around the world, adventure sports are growing in popularity. Young people today are looking for new ways to keep active and the City of Langley has designed a space that will offer a multitude of risky outdoor play opportunities.  According to UBC Professor Mariana Brussoni, that’s just what the youth of today need.

“We found that play environments where children could take risks promoted increased play time, social interactions, creativity, and resilience. These positive results reflect the importance of supporting children’s risky outdoor play opportunities as a means of promoting children’s health and active lifestyles.”

Aside from a 10,000 sq. ft. parkour park (see live footage), Penzer Action Park features KOMPAN Freegame, a multi-purpose sports plaza that accommodates several sports, including basketball, lacrosse, ball hockey and soccer.

Skateboarders get to test their skills on the new “pump track” while the Nature Play park lets younger children climb, hop, and swing from boulder to boulder and log to log.  Every age and every ability will benefit from the adventure fun at Penzer Park.

The park opened on June 29 and is located at 198C Street, south of 48 Avenue.
