Kids in Prague

Kinska Playground, Prague 5

Playgrounds on 06 June 2009 by Darina


This is a well hidden playground right in the heart of Prague 5 and bordering with Prague 1, with close proximity to a tram line. You enter through large metal gates into a beautiful park with tremendously wonderful old oak trees. 50 metres in you will see the fenced, playground area to your right.


The total play area is approximately 1500 square metres and has a high, secure fence all the way around it. As with many other newly build playgrounds in Prague there is a member of staff present in order to maintain the place, keep the lavatories clean and make sure that troublesome kids do not destroy the playground.


This particular place must have been constructed a few years ago since some of the garden furniture could do with repainting. Right in the middle of the playground you will find older children climbing on a quite difficult, almost impossible to climb tower with a reasonably steep slide at the end of it. In my opinion there is limited number of play equipment for younger children and since my boys are only 1 and half and 2.5 years old I will probably not go back to this place for at least another year when they could enjoy it better. Especially, if only 5 min away we can take full advantage of Playground at Detsky Island, which is perfectly equiped even for the smallest ones.


That said, when your choices are limited and you are not quite ready to go home and find yourself close to Svandovo Divadlo this place is worth considering. My boys appreciated the outdoor water tap which was easy to operate. That is quite refreshing as well as the shade provided by the old oak trees.

The playground is located in an area rich with shops and cafes. In the case of rain 3 minutes walk away you settle in the Cirkus Cafe with kids play area. Its is just around the corner from the playground.
