Playground Center company general manager Glenn Mars said the innovative playground equipment was an “exciting way to increase playtime for today’s discerning kids”.
“Fast and fun games test reflexes, speed, coordination and are designed to encourage social interaction and the healthy development of fine and gross motor skills,” he said.
Peet’s Managing Director and CEO, Brendan Gore, said they are always looking for new opportunities for homebuyers and their families to connect with others within their communities.
“At Peet, we’ve seen how vital parks play in helping families connect, so we’re continually finding new ways to attract families and make parks a central part of our communities,” said he declared.
The new playground is located at the Elavale Sales and Information Center at the corner of Eglinton Boulevard and Kingfisher Road.
