Ramsay Inclusive Playground
The main structure of the playground is located on the upper tier, and it’s accessible via a ramp or two other climbing options. Several activity panels are along the ramp leading to a slide. It’s connected to a rope climber leading to a higher slide.
The upper tier also has a climbing wall and a fully wheelchair-accessible merry-go-round. The climbing wall and rope climber provide a good challenge for smaller kids.
Walking down the hill, you pass several logs where you can sit and enjoy the view.
The lower tier has a tandem swing, a saucer swing, a 4-person bouncer, and many musical features.
The playground has several seating options – manly boulders and logs, but also a few benches around the playground.
What’s close by

The Ramsay Inclusive Playground is also easily accessible by the Elbow River Pathway. You’re just a short ride away from many restaurants in Inglewood, East Village Playground and St. Patrick’s Island.
