Smith Park
Smith Park was donated by the Smith Family to honour the memory of Elizabeth and Robert Smith, founders of Itaska Beach in 1934.  There is a rock path to walk through, and benches surrounding an area full of low growing junipers and other plants.

Playground Park
          Tennis Court
 
Professional plexipave surface. With anticipation of a busy tennis season this year, a sign-in board has been created and is posted on the side of the tennis court. There is a place for you to sign your name when you first start playing. You can also write your name down if you are waiting to play - this will allow you to leave for 20 minutes, and come back without losing your place in line!
 
Please wipe the board off with a clean, dry cloth.  If it becomes too dirty, a small amount of isopropyl alcohol may be used.
 
IMPORTANT: Tennis court net should have a bit of a bow in the net - do NOT over tighten as the crank will get stripped, and the poles will be pulled (professional tennis nets are not super tight).

Expression Swing: promotes intergenerational play as adults and children swing together. The patented face-to-face design features a toddler swing seat for children under five and a comfortable adult swing seat that allows a parent and child (or a grandparent and grandchild) to interact with each other and to experience one another’s facial expressions while at play.

There are hopper rocks & tree stumps to play games on, slides and hours of fun.

The colours and design were chosen to fit fit within the natural setting of Itaska Beach. 
The surface is EWF (Engineered Wood Fibre). The EWF is engineered just for playgrounds, although it may look like garden mulch, it performs and lasts and protects way different. EWF is non flammable, it holds the 11 foot fall height as a safety surfacing so that our children are safe to play. It is extremely important in the Itaska Beach setting as pets and wildlife do not use it as a litter box, unlike sand or pea gravel. It is designed to support a variety of mobility devices including wheelchairs, crutches and walkers.This surface provides superior fall attenuation and has an attractive, natural look.

When the wood is first installed its loose but after about a month of play it settles and knits itself into layers to protect the children.

Engineered Wood Fibre is also all natural, no chemicals are used in the production or refining of this product, its hypo allergenic and clean.
