YMCA – St. Marguerite d’Youville

Client: YMCA Oakville – St. Marguerite d’Youville
Location: Oakville, Ontario
Construction Budget: $50,000 – $100,000
Completion Date: 2015

The YMCA Oakville’s St. Marguerite d’Youville site provided a beautiful canvas for this natural childcare playscape.  The initial plan was to remove asphalt, add seating, and create clean eating spaces.  As the design developed, the vision enabled  transformation that was much more grand: a custom green playground with an embankment slide, outdoor kitchen, sand play area and multiple sensory experiences.

Earthscape’s “Jungle River” design features tinted concrete waterbeds (for trike riding), boulders, rapids, a river boat and finally sandy shores marked by a riverside hut. This daycare playground will provide children at the YMCA Oakville St. Marguerite d’Youville site enormous opportunity for passive, active, and creative play for years to come.
