Real Canadian Superstore Playground
Location: Behind East Grandstand

Open Daily

Spruce Meadows has always been a place for families.

From pony rides to face painting, children’s entertainers and innovative services such as the RE/MAX Family Centre, Spruce Meadows is a safe, wholesome and inviting place for family outings.

In 2004, the Real Canadian Superstore generously built the playground at Spruce Meadows. The playground features all the works that kids love — slides, a flying fox, climbers, swings, and of course, a horse carriage and “horsey” spring rides. Parents will be grateful for the opportunity to sit and relax, while the kids burn off some extra energy in a safe environment.

The project was a natural fit for the Real Canadian Superstore, a company that knows a lot about families.
