12 coolest playgrounds in Chicago

From zip lines to rock walls and splash pads

There are plenty of things to do with kids in Chicago, and its a great place to travel with family. The city has over 500 parks and that means a lot of places for little ones to jump, slide, and run. Whatever your playground needs may be, there’s something for everyone.

In 2013, the Park District spent three years rebuilding and renovating hundreds of playgrounds across the city. The agency wanted to make sure every kid was within a 10-minute walk of a park or playground.

Even today, new playgrounds continuing to open such as the one under construction in Walsh Park near the 606 Trail which has a towering slide, splash pads, and a nature play area. There are massive playgrounds like the 3-acre Play Garden in Maggie Daley Park with curly slides, bridges, hills, and climbing walls. But also neighborhood parks with all wooden climbing structures, water play tables, swings, and zip lines.
