Although not blessed with an abundance of parks there are some nice playgrounds and play areas we have come across throughout Chiang Mai.
The most common materials for building playground equipment seems to be metal. If these are well maintained then they do a good job but sometimes they look worryingly rusty. On the other hand there are some nice plastic playgrounds around but sometimes these aren't maintained then the intense sunlight and humidity seems to warp and crack the plastic.
These are some of our favourites, although we're pretty sure there are still others to discover.
Best Outdoor Playgrounds
If you are looking for a free outdoor playground in Chiang Mai for the kids to enjoy, these are the best two we have found so far:
Attractions with playgrounds
These attractions are great for kids but there is also the added bonus of a playground.
Cafes & Restaurants with Playgrounds
Pretty much every restaurant and cafe in Chiang Mai welcomes children, but not all of them are child friendly. These are the places we have found which have been built with kids in mind .
8. At Ginger Farm, along with all of their other fantastic farm activities, there is now a covered wooden playground, recently built. There is a wooden walkway and ladder to negotiate, bales of hay to climb and a climbing net. The playground is for kids above 3 with adult supervision. They have also recently finished building a wonderful bamboo walkway through the rice fields and this is great for spotting ducks and birds among the rice stalks. In addition, there is a nice sand pit, kites to fly when the wind is up and plenty of farm animals around. The food, cakes and drinks are consistently very good. Another firm favourite of ours.
