Adventure Playground

160 University Ave
Berkeley, CA

Adventure Playground is a relic of a bygone era when kids could run around playing stickball in the street and stay out ’til ma rang the dinner bell. Kids can imagine, build, and decorate their own play structures with saws, hammers, nails, and paint. They earn the right to use these tools by collecting hazards (like loose nails in the sand) and turning them in to the loan desk. There are more permanent features like the climbing web and zip line too (for folks over six).
