I’ve got some big news to share, folks. TELUS Spark gets one-acre bigger this Friday, August 15. That’s when The Brainasium, a year-round, outdoor park opens on the grounds of the science centre. Designed for children and adults to discover the science of play, it’s chock full of family friendly adventures.
I was able to get a sneak-peek last week and am thrilled to share my findings. Be sure to read the whole post for a chance to win a free entry to TELUS Spark this weekend for your entire family.
The Brainasium at TELUS Spark
As parents, we’re always fretting about the safety of our children, but I think it’s so sad kids don’t have that same freedom we enjoyed back in the olden days. TELUS Spark has nailed the balance between building a park that’s safe and one that fosters our children’s sense of independence. The playground is fully enclosed, allowing caregivers to turn off their helicopter engines and let kids run around on their own.
Each of the 11 experiences in the one-acre space are physically engaging activities designed to combine brain and body adventures. You’ve got your physics-inspired play in the form of whisper dishes, a sand pendulum that’s like a life-size spirograph, plus a five-tonne spinning rock.
