Playground Planning

Building or upgrading a playground benefits children and the community for years, but it takes collaboration and lots of time. ¬ť∂Ļ…Ámadou can guide and support parent groups and volunteers through this long but rewarding process.

Getting started

Playground committees

Every playground project starts with a playground committee that includes:

  • parent fundraising association members
  • parent volunteers
  • community stakeholders

Throughout the process, your committee may also consult with:

  • Division staff
  • your local community league
  • the City of Edmonton

Your school principal can contact Integrated Infrastructure Services to connect with a playground project manager. Your playground project manager will help guide your committee through the project. An infrastructure grant coordinator from ¬ť∂Ļ…Ámadou will also provide support. 

Once your committee is in place, you’re ready to start planning your new playground.
