Overview

The Kerry Wood Nature Centre in Red Deer, AB, is situated on traditional first nations land, a sensitive watershed, and bird sanctuary. The facility includes space for a nature-based preschool, and the goal was to create a playground that celebrates the stunning environment that surrounds the centre. Today, the space is fully accessible and features a music sound garden, sand area with water pump and stream, and ample loose parts children can use to construct sand sculptures and water dams. Moreover, the playground provides children of all ages with opportunities for play and development. There are active, quiet, creative, and sensory opportunities available all in one amazing playground!

The sand area with the water pump and stream is my favourite feature here.  Children of all ages can explore, create and build in this area with the sand and water provided.  Loose parts in the area are naturally found to add to their sand sculptures and dam construction. 

 The balance between activities is provided allows children of all ages and development to play here.  There are active, quiet, creative, and sensory opportunities available all in one playground.
