The City of Edmonton offers a wide variety of programs for children aged 0-12 yrs. All Children’s programs are trendy, theme-related and safe, but what matters most from your kid’s point of view – they are tons of fun!

Even better, all the fun takes place at our amazing recreation centres, which offer a variety of exciting amenities for your child/children to enjoy and be entertained.

Whether your child loves to move and be active, enjoys being more creative, or prefers a mix of both, the City has something that fits your child’s interests. 

Please note: ACT Aquatic and Recreation Centre does not offer child minding. Children must be supervised at all times. For facilities that do offer child minding, see Kids Den.
