The playground at the Science Centre in Regina features play structures that demonstrate scientific concepts while also being super fun. For instance, three teeter totters each have a fulcrum in a different place. If you try to lift someone on the other side, you’ll discover which fulcrum placement makes lifting the easiest.

Charlotte’s review (6 years old): “My favourite thing was the bridge. It was super cool.”
Luc’s review (4 years old): “I liked the tunnel because I could walk through it.”
This playground is awesome because your kids can learn and play at the same time, and you will feel like a super-parent. The giant musical instruments include a metal thunder sheet (shake it to hear the roaring), tubular bells (big wind chimes), a drum kit, and a rain stick. The kids had a lot of fun here making a lot of noise.
There’s also a bridge that can be built out of loose blocks, but we found this requires at least two adults. The kids were very proud of us. The swings and teeter totters with varying fulcrums were also popular. The playground also has an echo tube to yell into, and thermal tubes to crawl through (one is warmer than the other).
This is an awesome playground! If you’re in Regina, don’t miss it – it’s located beside the Science Centre (review here), and it’s free.
