RAILSPUR PARK PLAYGROUND
People always seem to be surprised by this playground, as if it appeared out of nowhere. And maybe it did, considering Granville Island is a place of magic and wonder. Tucked behind the Opus Art Supply store and across the street from the old Arts Umbrella building, this playground can be found on the east end of the studios along Railspur Alley. This brightly coloured play space has a fun slanted window for little ones to peek out of and a couple of spinners to get as dizzy as one pleases. Right beside it is a free library of artsy books and a garden path with lots of big rocks and dirt for kids to practice their balance, coordination and mudpie making skills.
