Check out these awesome hidden gem playgrounds

Hello, summer!

Prince George basically by-passed spring and went straight into summer these past two weeks, and we’re totally okay with that!

We all know and love the large municipal parks like Duchess Park and L’heidli T’enneh Memorial Park, but what about the hidden gems?

It’s time to take full advantage of that glorious sun, so get the kids ready and check out these lesser-known playgrounds speckled throughout the city.

Many of our favorites are located at schools, so be mindful of when class is in session and check them out after hours or on weekends.

Ron Brent Elementary boasts some pretty cool climbing features not found at many other schools.

Kids can get a full body workout while hanging upside down, or test the limits climbing to new heights.
