They contain a variety of materials and loose parts such as boards, tires, tape and cardboard that children are free to use to build, demolish, assemble and change their environments as they desire.
Warm up with your favourite Old Fashioneds, made from the ice bar station on the patio of ONE18 Empire to celebrate winter and the Whiskey Wisemen YYC, Canadian style!
