This was the scene on a chilly Wednesday morning at the natural play space playground in North Battleford’s Centennial Park. Battlefords Early Childhood Intervention Program was touting the arrival of their new “expression swings”, the next phase of the playground’s development. The swings were installed by Gord Whitton and staff from the city of North Battleford.
The idea, said executive director Colleen Sabraw, is to allow face to face interaction between parents/grandparents and their babies on the swing. The new swings costabout $5,000-$6,000 and comes from a company in Oregon. The next phase for the playground will be to add a wheelchair-accessible “liberty swing” and that is expected to be installed until after warmer weather arrives in the spring. Photos submitted.
