The City of Medicine Hat recently celebrated the grand opening of Liion's Playground, another fully accessible playground designed and manufactured by Blue Imp.

Dignitaries on hand to mark the occasion included provincial and municipal politicians as well as representatives from the Lion's Club, Chamber of Commerce and members of the public out to enjoy the new outdoor play space. The Lion's Club was instrumental in going after the funding necessary to make the playground a reality.

Featuring a wide variety of play for all ages and abilities, Lion's Playground is fast becoming a destination playground for local families.

Accessible surfacing along with a combination of ramps, accessible stairs and bridges allow children or caregivers with mobility challenges to make their way to the very top and back down easily with plenty of hands-on fun along the way. The playground is topped with a stunning custom roof which depicts the legend of how Medicine Hat got its name and is hand-painted by local artists.
