The City of Mississauga is hosting four Pop Up Adventure Playground events in Mississauga Parks. The events will be run by Earth Day Canada. Pop Up Adventure Playgrounds will give kids the opportunity to use their imaginations and experience unstructured self-directed play.
Outdoor self-directed, open-ended free play is a great way to connect children to their outdoor environments and community; to nurture their ingenuity, independence and sense of agency; to facilitate inclusion and support their mental and physical well-being. The POP-UP Adventure Playground offers a variety of "loose parts" that will serve to animate the space and provide enriched play opportunities in the city parks.
You can find out more about Earth Day Canada and the Play movement through their website and you can watch a Pop Up Play Adventure event in action here.
Pop Up Play Adventure Park event dates:
- Thursday July 26, 9am-12pm, Ceremonial Green Park
- Thursday August 2, 9am-12pm, Brickyard Park
- Thursday August 9, 1pm-4pm, Community Commons Park
- Tuesday August 14, 1pm-4pm, Serson Park
What Parents Have To Say About Our Program
"I am so happy to have the program just around the corner from my home. I'm a stay at home mom with 2 kids, 10 and 4, with no chance of paying for expensive camps, this was a huge relieve for me and great for my son to socialize and do exercise. I will definitely recommend this to everybody and I wish we can have it next summer. There are a lot of families who would benefit of this program. The 3 leaders are amazing with the kids."

"My son has attended the program from the very beginning at Lake Aquitaine Park. He LOVES it and asks each day to attend and is sad to go home. He loves all the games, crafts and activities he can do with his new friends. The leaders are very well trained and ensure that the kids are having a great time. I have recommended this program to other parents I know to encourage them to get their kids outside. Thank you City of Mississauga Parks and Rec for providing us with this program this year!"
