{ New Brighton Playgrounds Top Our Spring Play List }


It's Springtime in Saskatoon!  Wahoo!

The kids and I are so excited to shed the cumbersome winter gear and head out for some after-school outdoor explorations. One of the first things on our "Spring play list" was checking out the amazing playgrounds in the new Brighton community.

Brighton is a new neighbourhood that is taking shape on the east end of Saskatoon. You can find it south of Highway 5 near the Wilson's Greenhouse turn-off at McOrmond Road.

There are currently two new playgrounds in the community. This particular one can be found at the southern edge of the current development. {Watch for our review of the other one to come!}


As we drove up to this playground, my 8-year-old, 4-year-old and I simultaneously said, "WOW!" It is a beauty.

My son said his favourite features were the "hideouts" in the logs. In fact, around just about every corner of the main play structure is a great opportunity for tag, hide-and-seek, or grounders. I also love how these elements inspire creative play.

My girlie's faves were the climbing and balancing logs. They were at an accessible height for her but challenging enough to make her feel so proud.

This playground has one swing seat, one bucket swing, twin slides and a spiral slide, loads of climbing and balancing options, circular monkey bars, spinners, talk tubes, several musical elements and a couple cute bears. The playground currently has one picnic table and a bench or two. {I admittedly didn't pay too much attention to the benches because I was having too much fun playing tag and trying out all the equipment!}


I love exploring new playgrounds with my kids, and I can definitely say we will be repeat visitors to this beautiful Brighton playground.

What's on your Spring play list?
