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.

Keeping it indoors, Mum


Millennium kids come with a new set of rules and play ideas! Who said a ball cannot be kicked indoors? Or that kids should not be bouncing off walls? Or climbing door frames? The Indoor playground directory 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. All round family entertainment includes bowling alleys, restaurants, and party venues.

For the love of Sunshine – outdoor playgrounds


Fancy a splash or two? Or lazy walks at the Zoo? The Outdoor playground directory will keep you busy for hours as you select the ideal venue for you. There’s something for everyone – something of interest for boys, for girls, for kids, for families. From Rose gardens to zoos, from mazes to go carts, from picnic spots to water theme parks, from bike parks to cableways, Johannesburg surely has a load to offer. Unleash the tension, set the spirit free, find the kid in you and join the family in some outdoor fun. Be immersed in beautiful views of African skylines – lookout for venues in the outskirts of the City for a truly soul-fulfilling experience.

Dining with the kids can be fun – restaurants with playgrounds


Aha! Finally! Johannesburg’s finer restaurants not only offer kids menus but also some sort of entertainment for the kids. Amongst the restaurants one will find restaurants that offer play areas for kids and others that keep the kids busy with some creative sand art or ceramics or even pottery. With some food for fuel and great toys and play things at hand, kids will be begging to frequent these restaurants more often. Restaurants with playgrounds make the ideal venue for a quick catch up with friends, a remote office, or even a Sunday afternoon family lunch. They make for great party venues too – with menus, entertainment, decor and even party packs all sorted. Ditch the housework mum – head over to a kid friendly restaurant.

Ongoing fun at Recreation Centres


Affordable fun never stops at Recreation centres. These centres in the heart of every suburb offer all sorts of fun activities for children and families. One can enrol for dance, martial arts, gymnastics, science programs, sewing and so much more.Recreation centres are often the hub of activity for grandparents as they knit to the latest gossip or health condition. Many offer venues for parties and weddings too. Be on alert for holiday programs and checkout their facilities – swimming pools, jungle gyms, trampolines are common to most.

Begin the search


Be it a play day , a kids outing in Johannesburg or a dinner celebration, browse the playground directory to find the ideal venue for you. Bear in mind the weather and sort of playground you require, opening and closing times, but remember with Jozikids, an awesome play day is just a click away.
