Westhills is opening its first children’s playground this Sunday, June 11.

The playground has slides reaching heights of up to 30 feet and is geared towards children from five to 12 years old. It also has some equipment that can enjoyed by younger tykes.

The celebration at the park will kick off at 1:30 p.m. with a visit from Spider-Man and a barbecue. Members of Langford council will officially open the park at 2 p.m.

“Not only is this an amenity for Westhills, it’s an amenity for Langford,” said Rohan Rupf, a spokesperson for Westhills.

A second stage to the playground will be added later in the fall to be geared for children two to five years old. The park is located off Dornier Road in Westhills.
