Riverbend Playground Project

Playground at River Rock Manor was removed in the fall of 2017 as part of the City of Calgary Playground Optimization Program. Some of the playground equipment was no longer meeting Canada Safety Association Standards. It is now up to the residents of Riverbend to decide how best to use the space. There are several options that are being discussed:

  1. leave space as is (with remaining playground equipment)
  2. take out remaining playground equipment and convert into green space
  3. add picnic tables to the area
  4. put new playground equipment [this option is very costly and due to current Riverbend demographics unlikely to be approved]
  5. put 'ninja style equipment' -see picture

We continue to receive/collate feedback from residents on ideas that they have for this area. To date, the idea that seems to be at the top of the list is the “ninja style obstacle course” which has about 70% support as a concept. Please feel free to pass on any feedback you may have as it helps us determine what we would like to do with it. We are looking for some interested community members to engage with for this and other Riverbend playgrounds. Please contact us if you would like to be involved at communications@riverbendcommunity.ca
