Playgrounds with plastic slides, rubber ‘doodads’ and metal monkey bars seem to be the norm these days, but not for North Battleford, Saskatchewan. In September 2018, they opened a natural playground in Centennial Park made from boulders, tree trunks and a teepee made by local elders. This playground was built by Battleford’s Early Childhood Intervention Program to encourage children to connect with nature and experience nature within city limits. This natural playground is intended to spark imagination, create new play and different experience every visit. Learn more about North Battleford’s natural playground here.
