Temporary playground closures

Beginning Thursday, May 12, work will begin on a rubber resurfacing project for multiple City of Lethbridge playgrounds, which will result in temporary closures. Two playgrounds will also be receiving full play equipment replacements. The playgrounds will be fenced off during construction to protect the public.

The following playgrounds will be resurfaced with pour-in-place rubber surfacing:

  • Willowbrook
  • Rideau
  • Georgetown
  • Kiwanis
  • Ridgewood
  • Fairmont Garden
  • Heritage Road
  • Crossings

Each resurfacing will take 3-4 weeks to complete, weather permitting.

In addition to the resurfacing, the play equipment at Fairmont Garden and Heritage Road will be replaced. The work is anticipated to begin June 1 and end July 29, weather and construction crew permitting.

The new rubber surfacing uses Alberta-sourced recycled tires, diverting this material from landfills. The rubber surfacing is mobility device friendly for improved accessibility, provides consistent fall suppression that meets CSA requirements, and provides a colorful, inviting element to the play area.

The City of Lethbridge maintains 113 publicly available playgrounds across the city, if your favorite playground is under repair, you can find another park in your neighborhood here:
