Welcome to our Sandbox

Dufferin Grove Sandpit, Toronto, Canada

Welcome to our new sandbox. It’s a place to get news about IPA Canada’s comings and goings as well as exciting play-related developments from communities across the country. We’ll share insights from leading advocates as well as emerging experts and make available resources that contribute to a better understanding of play.

Kids set the fun bar pretty high when they zone into independent play and that’s what we’re reaching for here. IPA Canada is also sharing stories and curating on Twitter and will soon be adding other social channels.

We are always interested in hearing from friends old and new. If there is an idea, a story, or a development that you think we should be sharing, please get in touch with us through the Contact page.

Our homepage header image and the photos illustrating this post are from Toronto’s Dufferin Grove Park. Community-led and managed, the sandpit has been a destination playspace for residents and visitors for over 20 years.
