Winterize

Water Odyssey provides 'winterizing' tips for closing down spray pads 

By now, most Canadians are already sporting double layered clothing, thermal snow boots and have equipped their cars with snow tires in preparation for the frigid months ahead.

While you may be ready for winter...is your community? Most outdoor facilities close down for the cold season; some requiring extra precautions to withstand the harsh weather conditions.

GTfit seniors

Enjoy fresh air and exercise with GTfit outdoor fitness equipment for ages 50+

Experts claim that seniors should aim to be as active as possible. Studies show that older adults who stay physically active by exercising experience long-term health benefits. 

Incorporating a regular exercise routine can improve health for people with diseases and disabilities, as well as cognitive function. Exercising in nature has even more added benefits since it helps reduce stress and increase self-esteem.

Experience the art and science of play with IONiX by GameTime

The exploration of art provides children opportunities to discover creativity, self-expression, emotions and innovation. Simply being able to appreciate the visual aesthetics around them is important to spark a child’s imagination.

GameTime, the leading manufacturer of commercial playground and outdoor fitness equipment, is offering art through a child’s eyes with the introduction of IONiX. With bold, modern styling and play features exclusive to GameTime, kids, parents and grandparents alike are praising the IONiX commercial playground line as a beautiful community art installation!

A team of GameTime designers and engineers leveraged nearly a century of play research to create this outdoor modern work of art, which provides an exciting, ground-level accesible play system to promote active and imaginative play. The sweeping lines and organic shapes create a bold and elegant centerpiece within a park. It’s also a visual representation of the science of life; with shapes and patterns representing the design elements found in DNA.

Remembrance Day play

Remembrance Day- "Lest we forget" 

"In Flanders Fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.”
                                              -John McCrae

Today, on Remembrance Day, Play! by Crozier will be observing a minute of silence to honour those soldiers who fought for our freedom.
