Many of the playgrounds listed below have been upgraded to create places where children are physically challenged and can find excitement and adventure in safe surroundings.
Some are large complexes with multiple choices of equipment, while others are small, local gems with amazing views and wider opportunities for exploration and imaginative play.
All make great destinations for a free family fun day.
