2019 Cascades Awards

Finalist 2019 copy2

TELUS Spark is the 2019 Cascades WINNER in recognition of our summer experience, Junkyard Playground!

The 2019 Cascades Program is part of the Canadian Association of Science Centres and recognizes "outstanding people, programs and exhibits in Canada's science centres, museums, aquariums and planetariums." 

The Junkyard Playground is an outdoor play area designed for kids by kids. Adults are restricted from entering to fully allow kids to take the lead. Based on the "Risky Play" philosophy, visitors can find curated construction materials, real tools like hammers, nails and saws, for kid-directed building and play experiences that are messy, creative and free.

Imaginations run wild in the Junkyard Playground overflowing with moments of pride, opportunities to engage in risk play and multiple modalities of play.
