We will be bringing a European style pop-up adventure playground to New Westminster!

This will take place on a big open grassy area of Tipperary Park in New Westminster. We will have a defined space but lots of room for kids to build and create with freedom. The donated materials that will be used are the “spare parts” ie: fabric, PVC pipe, boxes, boards etc. We will have a station that will be adult assisted where we will be cutting some materials for kids as they direct for what they are building, and also have some hammers and nails and other bonding materials for kids to use within an acceptable risk level.

Children then use their imaginations to create things to play with, such as, forts, ramps, etc. The advantage of this style of program over other program styles are kids are able to play freely and therefore more creatively, kids must solve problems and challenges for themselves, kids have to opportunity to take risks and fail.

This activity will be free for the community. We will make sure there is ample water on hand. We will need parents to stay for the time their kids are at the pop up playground, but encourage you to take a hands off approach to allow free play.

We are excited to see what will be created and destroyed and rebuilt by the kids and excited to have you join us! Look forward to seeing you there on July 10th!
