The Shawnessy Child Development Centre has some very happy children. With summer fast approaching and outdoor play time lengthening, staff decided it was time to clean and revamp the outdoor play yard with some new toys and equipment. After all of the current equipment was removed from the play yard to be cleaned, the children had a few things to say about where the climbers and play house had disappeared to:
- “It was sucked up into the ground!”
- “The shed ate the climbers and slide! It is going to burst!”
- “Someone took them and put them in the grass area. We will need to talk to someone about that.”
- “Now we can ride the bikes all over and not worry about anything else.”
- “What is going on here? Trudy will have to figure this out.”
Equipment has now been returned to the play yard, along with some new structures for creative adventures – take a look!
Shawnessy YMCA is turning 13! Join us for a special birthday celebration on Monday, April 13.

I really recommend this sport due to its fun and challenging nature!
