In a word, phenomenal! Terra Nova is organized into two distinct zones — the Paddock and the Homestead. The Paddock has tandem 35m zip lines, a meadow maze, a twisting stainless steel hillside slide, and so much more. The Homestead area has a rope walkway, many climbing features, and a custom-designed 10m tall tree house with four platforms, a rope ladder, and a stainless steel spiral slide.
This playground reconnects people with nature. The features are designed using B.C. sourced Yellow Cedar, and there is nature all around. This playground has something for everyone.

A fabulous playground for children of all ages with many activities to explore. A lot of natural elements are incorporated as well as a lot of wood is used on the play structure itself. There is a huge net to climb and one of the slides is built into the side of a hill.
