      Coquitlam to Open New Adventure Playground for Summer

      COQUITLAM, BC, June 11, 2018 – On July 2, the City of Coquitlam will open a pop-up adventure playground—a pilot project in the City Centre area that will provide new, free outdoor play space for kids three to 12.

       

      What is an Adventure Playground? 

       

      Don’t expect the typical colourful play equipment like fixed swings and slides in this playground—adventure playgrounds emphasize the importance of unstructured play.

       

      This free outdoor drop-in space will encourage kids three to 12 to let their imaginations run wild as they play with planks of wood, hammers, nails, tires, tarps and other materials.

       

      Parents and caregivers are welcome to observe from the outside play area while children build, create, alter and enhance the space as they choose. Play is self-directed, creative and imaginative. Staff will be on site during operating hours to assist children in identifying the difference between an appropriate risk and a hazard.

       

      The adventure playground concept is part of a growing playground trend that encourages kids to be curious and creative, to engage with their surroundings, and to test their limits within an environment of managed risk.

       

      Benefits of Unstructured Play

       

      Emerging research is recognizing the benefits of unstructured, risky and creative play for healthy child development. Through free and independent play, children can:

      • Learn how to identify hazards and assess risks

      • Develop creativity and self-confidence

      • Practice critical thinking

      • Improve physical literacy

       

      Hours of Operation & Location

       

      The Pop-Up Adventure Playground is a nine week pilot project for summer 2018.  

       

      The playground will be open July 2 – Sept. 2 and the site will be open for play:

      • Monday – Sunday, 10:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.

      • Tuesday and Thursday, 10:30 a.m. – 6:30 p.m.

       

      The playground will be located in the wooded area off Town Centre Boulevard and Princess Crescent, near Guildford Way and Pinetree Way. The site is a short walk from the Lafarge Lake-Douglas SkyTrain station and pay parking is also available on Town Centre Boulevard. At the end of the summer, the playground will close for the season and all materials and equipment will be removed from the site.
