Whistler Accessible Playground

Table of Contents


On March 11, 2010, the Resort Municipality of Whistler opened its new accessible playground. The playground, located near the Medals Plaza in the Village, is one of three world-class accessible playgrounds planned in the 2010 Winter Games venue cities.

The Whistler playground features a multi-sensory wall, inspired by local skyline and a large, accessible tree house inspired by the region’s forests. The playground was designed to enable children with various disabilities to play side-by-side with their families and friends.

The three playgrounds were funded through a partnership of 2010 Legacies Now, the Province of BC, Ronald McDonald House Charities of Canada and Rick Hansen Foundation.
