Whatever you may think about Toronto, know that it's one of the big cities in Canada where your kids can still have some fun. Sure, it may not be the most exciting place in the world, but it's peaceful enough for you and your family to live a standard and peaceful lifestyle. But know that peaceful doesn't automatically mean boring, as many would assume. Particularly, your kids. There's a handful of places wherein your little ones can play, run around, and simply have fun without a care in the world! Here are a few you ought to know about!
Jamie Bell Adventure Playground- High Park
If your kids are the type to play pretend, take them to High Park. The Jamie Bell Adventure Playground is among the best in the city and for good reason! A collection of playground features, climbing frames, slides, and more, it looks more like a mini-town than a standard playground. A mini Medieval town, that is! You kids will love playing princess, knights, dungeons, and dragons in this beautiful castle-like paradise, allowing them to unleash their creativity in more ways than one. It's highly likely you'll spend most, if not the entire day waiting for them to be done playing if you bring them here.
David Crombie Park
Admit it—when you were applying for your Canadian visa
for you and your family, spending a day in a playground was far from what you expected you'd be doing. So if you do take your kids out for a family day, it'd be nice if you get to join in on the fun too! So why not take them to David Crombie Park? More than the standard playground features, there are also a few corners where even you can play as well. A basketball court, for instance, is perfect for a four-on-four game or even a one-on-one against your oldest.
Are you a young family? Are your kids a little too young to enjoy a standard playground with the slides, see-saws, and whatnot? Perhaps the best-suited play are to bring your little ones is Duffering Grove! It still has the classic playground features and all, but the massive sandpit is what your infants and toddlers will love best. Fortunately, the soft sandy area will ensure your kids will have loads of fun without you having to worry about healthcare costs
in case they get into an accident! There are fewer risks of that happening here, believe that!

Spinning rides, a wading pool, and a huge pirate ship to boot! It's safe to say that the most exciting playground on this list is the one on Withrow Park. With so many diverse features on offer, it's fun for the whole family, perhaps even you! The pinning rides and climbing frames are what your older kids will love best. As well as the pirate ship in the middle of the playground! They can go around and tire themselves out for all you care! You'll probably be too busy holding your youngest as he/she splashes away in the wading pool here!
More so a conservatory than your standard park, the Kew Gardens is still another great option for your family day of fun. The playground here has a Medieval castle-like structure that will excite your kids in more ways than one! Let them go wild and pretend their royalty, knights, or even old-time merchants if they want to! Or if you prefer a better exercise than just freeform play, you can also ride your bike and cycle your way around the botanical bliss on offer in this beautiful garden! It's your pick which one you want you and your whole family to do!
