Gone are the days of playing at school, then spontaneously climbing trees in the park and riding the bike around the neighbourhood. Play time in the City is fixed at a certain time. It is usually a date with friends and family and requires getting in a car to travel to the particular play area. Johannesburg offers the most prestigious playgrounds in South Africa - whether it's a playground that is indoors, outdoors, at a restaurant, party venue or recreation centre, you’ll find it here.

How to use the Playgrounds Directory
The type of playground that best suits your needs will certainly depend on the guests of honor – the kids! And, of course, the weather - both equally unpredictable. The playgrounds directory is divided into four sub –categories, being indoor, outdoor, restaurants and recreation centres. Select the type of playground that interests you, then browse through the many listings in that category to find the venue of your choice.

boasts a number of places in Johannesburg for kids to have some simple fun, without care of breaking vases or the raging thunderstorms beyond. Ideal for all weather conditions, indoor kids playgrounds come with a safety net, no rain checks due. Most are laced with state of the art equipment, from jungle gyms for the energetic toddler, to soft play equipment for babies and the popular trampoline parks for the adrenaline junkies.
