A playground, playpark, or play area is a place designed to provide an environment for children that facilitates play, typically outdoors. While a playground is usually designed for children, some are designed for other age groups, or people with disabilities. A playground might exclude children below a certain age.

Modern playgrounds often have recreational equipment such as the seesaw, merry-go-round, swingset, slide, jungle gym, chin-up bars, sandbox, spring rider, trapeze rings, playhouses, and mazes, many of which help children develop physical coordination, strength, and flexibility, as well as providing recreation and enjoyment and supporting social and emotional development. Common in modern playgrounds are play structures that link many different pieces of equipment.

Playgrounds often also have facilities for playing informal games of adult sports, such as a baseball diamond, a skating arena, a basketball court, or a tether ball.

Public playground equipment installed in the play areas of parks, schools, childcare facilities, institutions, multiple family dwellings, restaurants, resorts, and recreational developments, and other areas of public use.

A type of playground called a playscape is designed to provide a safe environment for play in a natural setting.

  • This unique park is one of the best kid friendly spots in the East Bay. If you are traveling with kids and want to do something for cheap that they will enjoy a lot, this is the place to go!  more »
  • Unique place in the bay area! Kids get to take risks, work with tools and paint. Make sure you put old clothes on your kid. We started coming here with my youngest when she was 2. Not for overprotective parents
  • Absolutely amazing place for kids where they can build or extend any existing playground elements. Paint, saw, 🔨, nails, magenta for collecting nails and few more tools for fun! Must go with all ages of kids
