Play Box

Play Boxes have shared games and sports equipment that children and families can borrow to enjoy active outdoor play. These colourful boxes are located in Middle Springs and Rotary Park and are free for families to use. The box is for residents of Banff only.

 Accessing the Play Box

To access a Play Box in your community fill out one of the following forms:

  • Middle Springs Play Box
  • Rotary Park Play Box
  • Line up the code you are then provided (allow up to 24 hours) with the four dashes on the lock
  • Please remember to lock the box when you are done and scrambler up the code to assure the lock is secure.


The Play Boxes are brought to you by the Town of Banff, Banff Rotary Club, and the Bow Valley Early Childhood Coalition.
