Forest Lawn Library Nature Playground
Calgary Public Library’s first outdoor Early Learning Centre is now open at Forest Lawn Library! The nature playground is designed to help Calgary’s kids learn and develop foundational skills through play. It’s a fully accessible space with special features and movable elements to encourage creative play and exploration.
Early Learning Centres at Calgary Public Library are vibrant and interactive spaces for children ages zero to five to engage in play-based learning.
