Jumpstart Inclusive Playground at Shipyards Park

The Jumpstart Inclusive Playground at Shipyards Park is now officially open! The universally-accessible playground was made possible thanks to support and funding from Canadian Tire Dealers Mike Varley and Dan Charlebois, and Canadian Tire Jumpstart. The Playground is part of the Charity’s Inclusive Play Project focused on inclusive infrastructure and programming to help give kids of all abilities access to sport and play. The Jumpstart Inclusive Playground was a gift to the City of Whitehorse and is one of a dozen such playgrounds built in communities across the country. We would like to thank residents for their patience during construction, and welcome everyone to enjoy the new inclusive playground. The official Grand Opening will take place in 2022.
