Toronto kids can now zip down the slide and pump their legs on the swings at "Sharon, Lois & Bram Playground".

A section of June Rowlands Park at Mt Pleasant Rd and Davisville Ave was dedicated to the iconic Canadian children's entertainers on Saturday afternoon. An elephant-shaped sign now marks the entrance to the playground, a tip of the trunk to their popular 1980s TV program, "The Elephant Show".

Local councillor Josh Matlow spearheaded the naming effort last year.

Dressed in brightly-coloured sweaters, Sharon Hampson, Lois Lilienstein, and Bram Morrison, now in their 70s, performed for dozens of kids Saturday as their moms and dads sang along.

Together, Sharon Lois and Bram have sold millions of albums worldwide, won three Juno awards and performed at the White House. In 2002 they were named to the Order of Canada.
