Burlington, Ont. — Feb. 22, 2021 — The City of Burlington will be replacing 13 playgrounds over the next two years and is encouraging families who use these playgrounds to complete a survey to pick the features they like the most.
The online survey is available at getinvolvedburlington.ca/lovemyplayground until March 26, 2021.
Playgrounds are an important part of the park experience and provide free physical and creative activities for children and their families. Playgrounds are designed to challenge and stimulate all children, of all abilities. Accessible outdoor play spaces allow for all children to play together, increasing understanding and inclusion.
“The value of outdoor play and our parks and open spaces has been demonstrated this year more than ever. With everyone’s help, we can design playground structures that appeal to all ages of children and parents can have confidence in their safety. Sit down with your kids, show them the options and ask them which they think is more fun.” — Chris Glenn, Director of Recreation, Community and Culture, City of Burlington
