Over the past few years the annual Aviva Community Fund program has been assisting groups with making their playground dreams come true. Habitat Systems is proud to have worked with schools who were recipients in receiving funding for their projects.
Habitat Systems is honoured to be working with the Ministry of Technology, Innovation and Citizens’ Services, who manage the Victoria provincial courthouse grounds – former location of “Tent City” – to develop the Victoria Courthouse Playground.
The Tent City project is a redevelopment project at the Victoria provincial courthouse grounds, which previously had been occupied as a homeless camp. Once the province was able to provide housing to every resident formerly at that location, plans to clean up the site were put into action. New and exciting playground equipment was planned to revitalize the site.
Students in the surrounding area have been eagerly awaiting the new playground and were asked to provide input on their favourite playground components. The new Global Motion (pictured above) by Landscape Structures was a clear winner in the voting process. This new playground and park will create a positive gathering place on the Victoria Courthouse grounds for children and adults of all abilities and ages. Installation is planned for March 2017. Stay tuned for more on this exciting project.
Habitat Systems was happy to work with Urban Systems to create a natural play space at the Fort St. John’s Child Development Centre. This natural inspired space takes a step back from a typical child’s playground of monkey bars and swings and focuses on the natural elements by incorporating logs and wooden structures to reconnect children with nature through play.
Shasta McCoy, a Landscape Architect from Urban Systems has worked on multiple natural play projects, and states that “As humans we’re just drawn to natural spaces. I love the very beginning of these projects, when you sit down to work and realize the possibilities are kind of endless. Your mind goes in all directions and there’s so much opportunity for creativity and exploration.”
Introducing the Victor Stanley Relay™ Sensor and Service, which continuously monitors fill level. But that’s just the beginning. Powered by our Street Level Sensing™ technology, Relay also…
• Continuously monitors fill level, weight, location and collection status
• Tracks location via GPS, so you always know where receptacles were moved and where they belong
• Allows you to log on and view collection data in real-time and historically
• Boosts efficiency in planning, scheduling and routing collections
• Saves an estimated 20-40% in collection expenses
• Is built for reliability and durability, along with everything we manufacture
Victor Stanley Relay™ uses technology, sensors and web services which we designed, built, and own, so you can rely on our product whether you retrofit Relay or make it part of your new receptacle orders.

Global Motion™ is Launched Today. New climbing structure accommodates large groups of kids while remaining easy-to-turn
Global Motion™ is a freestanding, rotating climber that welcomes entire groups of children aboard for a fully-inclusive, multisensory experience. Even when loaded with kids, Global Motion remains easy to turn and control thanks to a patent-pending progressive resistance mechanism which keeps things rotating at fun, yet controllable speed.
Children who love to climb and turn now have infinite play possibilities in their reach. Sensory-rich activities like Global Motion help children develop the skills necessary to engage, change and impact the world around them. In particular, playground activities with motion provide a fun way for kids to develop better depth perception, balance and cause-and-effect skills.
The Ultra Space Saver provides easy and ample space for u-lock security on nearly any bike, including bikes with fenders. Thanks to design enhancements, the double-sided Ultra Space Saver parks more than double the capacity of a standard bike rack.
