Pop Up Play

When you think about Edmonton’s downtown, do you think of it as a place for kids and families to play? Child Friendly Edmonton seeks to make the downtown core more playful through pop-ups that are focused on creative free play experiences for children and their families.

A small team of planners with the City of Edmonton, Child Friendly Edmonton and Stantec are coordinating a Pop Up Play event on Saturday, September 8th from 10:00 AM – 2:00 PM at Beaver Hills House Park.

At the event play, animators will facilitate play experiences for children of all ages that will include healthy, creative and self-directed play and physical activity opportunities. Child Friendly Edmonton aims to see children using their imaginations and the surrounding environment to facilitate their play. Parents must accompany their children and are encouraged to participate with their children. Children are free to come and go as they please from our Pop Up Play Programs.

Ages: 6 – 12 years (children under 6 must be supervised by a parent or guardian)
Date: Saturday, September 8th
Time: 10:00 AM – 2:00 PM
Location: Beaver Hills House Park
Cost: Free!

Programs are led by staff who:

  • Ensure participants play safely. Parents are responsible for their children at all times and must be available in the event of an emergency.
  • Are easily identifiable by their blue shirts and name tags.
  • May be assisted by volunteer Leaders in Training.
  • Have completed a security clearance process, are trained in First Aid and are certified specialists in FUN!
