Kids Castle in Cranberry is, hands down, the most amazing playground we’ve ever been to in Pittsburgh (see our entire list here). Located just past Fun Fore All in Cranberry on Rt. 19, this mega playground is ideal for children ages 5-12 years old (however little ones will certainly love it, too!). Recently completed in September of last year, it won the 2013 Community Project of the Year. This $500,000 project was made possible by members and business’ in the community.
There’s so much attention to detail with multiple play spaces and interactive elements. Older children will love the climbing equipment (and parents will love the soft, squishy ground). Ropes, tunnels, bridges and even really amazing in-ground musical elements with speakers that play when you step in certain spots.
There’s also a playground structure with a type of climbing rock wall, slides and plenty of spaces to crawl beneath. We really loved the whimsical forest theme present on the climbing bars shaped like trees and the swing sets. Areas have signs that designate which areas are appropriate for what ages. Little ones will surely love the springy rides and mushroom climbers! You can find plenty of benches and seating great for picnicking. Lush green fields surround the playground area as well as a shallow creek for exploring.
Other facilities nearby include baseball fields, a dog park, basketball courts and
