Play structures will be replaced in the following parks:
- W.J.L. Harvey Park (Silverwood Heights neighbourhood)
- James Anderson Park (Eastview neighbourhood)
- Westmount Park (2 play structures) (Westmount neighbourhood)
- Albert Park (2 play structures) (connected to both Varsity View and Nutana neighbourhoods)
- Victoria Park (Riversdale neighbourhood)
- Henry Kelsey Park (Hudson Bay Park neighbourhood)
This project is funded in part by the Government of Canada.
The City of Saskatoon operates 45 weekday and 16 weekend Play Programs at various playground locations throughout Saskatoon in July and August.
