Wychwood Barns Park Playground is located at 76 Wychwood Ave., southeast of Benson Avenue and Christie Street, just east of the Community Building.

The playground currently includes:

  • One swing sets with:
    • Two swings for ages two to five
    • Four swings for ages five and up
  • A medium-sized slide climbing structure and small slide
  • Two teeter-totters and stepping stools
  • Sand under all play areas

The playground will be redesigned using feedback from the community. The redesigned playground is proposed to include:

  • Playground equipment for ages two to five and five and up
  • Additional seating
  • Engineered wood fibre playground surfacing
  • Accessible play equipment and an accessible pathway connecting to the playground area. This means that people of all abilities will be able to play at this playground.

Improvements will only be made in the general playground area. This will not include any new water or lighting features or improvements to other areas of the park.
