An inclusive and accessible playground is coming to Clareview District Park, located in Northeast Edmonton.

The playground structure will be a gift from Canadian Tire Jumpstart Charities to the City of Edmonton as part of the Charity’s Inclusive Play Project, which focuses on removing accessibility barriers to sport and play.

“We encourage Edmontonians of all ages, abilities and interests to enjoy the benefits of physical activity, and play is one of the creative ways to do this,” said Mayor Don Iveson in a release. “I thank Jumpstart Charities for bringing their inclusive playground project to Edmonton, we look forward to celebrating this new play opportunity together.”

The new 16,000-sq-ft playground will be the largest of its kind in Edmonton, where kids of all abilities can play together.

According to a release from the city, “the playground structures will create developmentally appropriate spaces for kids of all ages and abilities, including double-wide ramps, a roller slide, a bucket seat with harness swing, a quiet zone designed for children with spectrum disorders, and more.”

This will be the second Jumpstart Playground built in Alberta, and the ninth built across Canada.
