Granary Road has been a lovely new addition in the south of Calgary for wholesome family fun. The public market is open year around and doesn’t require any admission. The Active Learning Park is the section of Granary road that requires admission and has various exhibits with different themes where the children can learn, play and enjoy themselves.
Maybe your child is an animal lover, nature geek or a bug fanatic. There is something for everyone in this park. First let’s appreciate how huge the Active Learning Park is!
The Granary Road Active Learning Park is set in a beautiful prairie landscape and gives families an opportunity to enjoy nature and active learning in the same setting.
The first exhibit is the frog pond where there are many opportunities for children to hop like frogs and learn about these amazing animals!
The Mushroom Meander is also another fun exhibit:
All exhibits have lots of spots for parents to sit as the children play. Plus I love how every exhibit has a shaded area to enjoy a snack or just rest.
All play structures are nature-themed making the Granary Road experience extremely immersive.
and who doesn’t love a petting zoo!
and a tree house is a dream for children and adults alike!
All exhibits have informative tools including trivia questions, education walls, games and activities for children to learn in an engaging way.
In one visit the children learnt about bugs, bees, bats, chicken, ants and much more!
A favorite of the children were the two ziplines at the park.
I loved how there were restrooms and snack options accessible throughout the park. There were also benches and shaded areas to enjoy home-brought snacks.
You can also always enjoy a lovely meal at the Public Market after enjoying all the exhibits. The beautiful walk will definitely build your appetite.
