Our Favorite Sand Free Playgrounds in YEG

Don’t get me wrong, I love sand, but it can stay at the beach.  With the weather cooling down in Edmonton, flip flops, shorts and tank tops are being replaced with sneakers, pants, sweaters and jackets. One of my biggest mommy pet peeves is sand in shoes, clothes, hair, and everywhere else! Plus, back in the spring my daughter had a cast on her foot, so we went in search of sand free playgrounds so she could still play without it affecting her cast.

Recycled rubber is becoming the favorite choice when new playgrounds are being built. Here’s a list of our favorite sand free playgrounds in Edmonton.
