  • The Queen’s Park Farm operations were paused in 2020 due to COVID-19. Due to ongoing public health orders, and space limitations of the farm, traditional farm programs will remain suspended for the 2021 season.

    The Parks and Recreation Department is taking this opportunity to try out new and alternative COVID-19 friendly programming in the farm space. On a trial basis, visitors to Queen’s Park will have the opportunity for new experiences in the farm space.

     

  • Playgrounds are an essential part of children's growth and a positive escape from the 'electronic world'. Playgrounds allow children the opportunity to socialize while developing balance, strength and confidence.

    Playground Locations

  • New West Skatepark

    Located in Queen's Park, the skatepark is the evolution of input from the local skateboarding community gathered at a series of design workshops. Unique skate elements and a variety of transition styles and coping work together to create flow through the park which was inspired by the former Mercer Skatepark.

    Custom design :

    • The focus on flow is complimented by a satellite peanut style bowl and is surrounded by “street style” elements. 
    • The design integrates zones for different levels of ability from beginner to expert.
    • The intent is to accommodate all ages, ability and wheels, making it a great addition to the recreational opportunities within Queens Park.
