Florence Hallock School
Challenging climbers, fun activity panels, and one of the biggest ziplines in Edmonton! What more could you ask for? The playground at Florence Hallock School also features a relaxing picnic shelter and inclusive rubber surfacing.
You’d be hard pressed to talk about the playground at Florence Hallock School without mentioning its massive zipline. Spanning over 40ft. long, our Rail Rider is one of the biggest (if not THE biggest) ziplines you’ll find in all of Edmonton. To top things off, an inclusive disc seat ensures that all kids can experience the Rail Rider’s exhilarating speed, no matter their ability.
But, the fun doesn’t stop here. Florence Hallock School boasts a multitude of play activities that will keep kids engaged for hours on end. This ranges from the twisting challenge of our Infinity High Climb, to the imaginative possibilities of our Wishbone Climber. Our Hoop-La Climber is yet another standout piece, allowing kids to crawl in any direction across its colourful rings.
Overhead climbers, Balance Beams, and Stepping Stones provide excellent linkage across the playground. Kids can traverse from one end of the park to the other in one seamless experience. This goes a long way to promote popular playground games, like “Grounders” and “Lava Tag”, where touching the ground is off limits.
When it comes to inclusion, pour-in-place rubber surfacing provides a smooth ride for children in wheelchairs and mobility devices. Kids can interact with a variety of panels at the ground level, or hangout with their friends below deck. An ADA Transfer Station provides access to the main play structure, allowing kids to maneuver through our Inclined Crawl Tunnel or zoom down our Stainless Steel Slide.
Finally, for parents and caretakers, there’s a spacious picnic shelter to lounge at placed adjacent to the playground. This lets parents stay cool and comfortable during their visit, while still keeping a careful eye on their children. Families may also use the shelter to celebrate special events, whether it’s a birthday, scavenger hunt, or relaxing Sunday picnic.

“The park at Florence Hallock School is amazing. One of the better parks we have been to as a family with a toddler and two older girls for sure. It’s hard to find a park that has something for everyone with the age gap between all of my girls, but this one hits the nail on the head.”Edmonton Mamaedmontonmama.ca
“The playground at Florence Hallock School, in Edmonton, didn’t disappoint. Not only was there a huge climbing structure for the kids to play on, but there were benches, a picnic table and a shaded area – and the best part, a cool zipline.”Raising Edmontonraisingedmonton.com
“Time for a closer look at another one of our city’s great Zipline Parks! Florence Hallock School is much more than just a zipline! It’s full of cool climbers, great colours and one of the neatest merry-go-rounds we’ve ever seen - it’s built into the ground!”@edmontonplaygroundsInstagram
