First things first: You have to sign a waiver upon entry that you will not hold Adventure Playground liable if your kid gets hurt. There's a REASON for that waiver. This is not your local suburban park playground with a rubber floor and lawsuit-proof play...More

I booked a two hour block at Adventure Playground for my son’s 10th bday. There were 10 kids (mainly boys) between the ages of 6 and 13. They ALL had a blast. They explored, created, collaborated, played on the zip line and cleaned after they...More

We did not have kids here, but we watched all of the kids skip the "regular" playground for this. Well staffed and definitely creative. My children are grown, but I would have a been a "nervous Nelly".

Even though its designed for 6+ year old children, our 4 year old was able to enjoy majority of this playground. He was thrilled to explore this unique layout of playing, where he could play on a structure in several creative manners. Hang, swing or...More

If you are a helicopter parent, this is not the place for you! Lots of things to play with and space to run around. Play in the dirt, play with tools, zip line, climb, get dirty....awesome good fun! Set near the Marina so you get...More

This is a large adventure ground with lots of opportunity to build on existing structures, ride a tire swing, or have the kids go down the zip line. There are plenty of opportunities for scrapes, falls, or injuries. We have seen many a child fall...More

They had us at hammers, nails, saws, and paint. We are visiting from out of town and found this searching for “kid activities” in Berkeley. Great place for kids ~5yrs+. Free if you stay with them, $10/ea if you leave them. My kids were in...More

So... it was just okay. My kids were entertained for about an hour or so (and they are two super active boys), but it really is not a great spot for a three year old and they are ALL about rules here. I like that...More

This is a great place for kids to explore, create, build, learn to use tools, all in a supervised fashion. Located right on the bay. Bring your bike and go on a ride along the bay with your kids afterwards or while your kids are...More

To say the Adventure Playground is unique is an understatement. Yes it's unique, and very Berkeley, but that misses the point. This playground is designed to let the users (the kids!) have the most interactive, creative, and hands on experience possible. It's a Maker's Fair...More

There is a lot right across from the playground in the marina. We parked down by the pier that was not far either.
