Calgary

TimberNook of Greater Calgary operates out of Edworthy Park, right in the heart of Calgary. We have found a cozy corner of the park with a spring running through it and giant trees to inspire all sorts of magical play experiences, with ducks and deer coming to visit, and birds nesting close by. We celebrate 'near-by nature,' and strive to make our programs accessible to busy families.

Overview


TimberNook of Greater Calgary is pleased to offer unique, high quality outdoor play programs for Calgary children. We are a team of highly trained staff, including pediatric physiotherapists, occupational therapists, teachers, and environmental educators, who can't wait to welcome you and your children to our TimberNook family!
