Hotel-Dieu Grace Healthcare and the John McGivney Children’s Centre in Windsor, Canada, have partnered to create a health and wellness space for patients, staff, kids and their families, according to an article on the Windsor Star website.

The new multi-faceted outdoor facility — located in the green space between the two properties  — includes special playground and workout equipment.

The LiUNA!625 Outdoor Recreation and Wellness Centre caters to rehab patients at the hospital. The second section — Play McGivney — is a fully accessible playground with lights and sounds for children of all ages.
