Podcast seeks Edmonton's best playground, past or present

· The Pulse

What's your favourite Edmonton playground? Let's Find Out wants your help to answer a listener's question.

"If you have a strong opinion about what Edmonton's best playground is or was, we want to hear about it," host Chris Chang-Yen Phillips said as he issued the invitation to contribute to the September episode of the curiosity-fuelled history podcast.

The Let's Find Out crew invites nominations via Instagram, Facebook, or email. They'll visit promising playgrounds in the coming weeks.

"We want to go check it out," said producer Trevor Chow-Fraser, who has an in-house playground-tester at the ready (you may remember Eliot from the lichen episode). "If you want to tag along with us, let us know, too."

This is part of Let's Find Out's season on parks and natural areas, which launched with a live show last fall. The season will conclude with another live show, this time focusing on what we can learn from the past about building national parks, as governments explore creating a national urban park in Edmonton's river valley.

The live show will happen on Sept. 21 at the Alfred Savage Centre in Whitemud Park — save the date and subscribe to Let's Find Out for updates.
