1. Kid City If you’re looking for a spot that’ll keep your older brood just as happy as the younger set, then Kid City is the place to go. Little ones, older than one, have a separate section in the three-level play structure with a double mini slide, moonwalk climb and lots of soft-play stations. Older kids will enjoy slides, mazes and a trolley glide. New to Kid City is a laser maze, which is fun for any kid who fancies herself to be a secret agent.

2. Great Big Adventure Kids definitely won't get bored with 3,000 feet of play structure to explore. Kids 12 and younger will love this jungle gym which features awesome 20-foot long slides. And toddlers have their own special spot to hang out in. There’s also a mini-sticks area, where hockey fans can get their game on in.

3. Polar Playground This Arctic-themed playground teaches kids ages three to 12 all about polar bears and other creatures from Canada’s north. The playground is free with paid admission to Assiniboine Park Zoo and features a multi-level play structure with a slide, climbers and tunnels to explore. The coolest part—no pun intended-- is the interactive elements like a moving ice-mass floor that responds to even the littlest footsteps, an ice cave with secret messages, an Aurora Borealis wall that lets kids conduct the northern lights and a massive icicle xylophone.
