Organization Description: 

Adventure Playground is an outdoor facility at the Berkeley Marina featuring unique play experiences and staff who encourage children to play and build creatively, using simple tools. It's designed for children ages 7 and up but younger children are welcome if accompanied by adults. Kids can use the play area featuring low-risk “build your own playground” activities, including hammering, sawing, and painting. They can climb on kid-designed forts, boats, and towers. Kids earn the right to use tools by picking up trash, collecting nails, and finding dangerous items. Kids love the old-fashioned zip line!There is a picnic area and restrooms available outside the park near a small beach area.From mid-June to mid-August, Adventure Playground is open on weekdays from 9am–5pm. In these summer months, drop off the kids for a couple of hours of free play time, fishing, creative building, crafts, or other special activities offered by Adventure Playground staff.Celebrations:

Getting There: 
From San Francisco, cross the Bay Bridge and take 80 East to Berkeley. Exit University Avenue and head west toward the Bay. Adventure Playground is just before the end of the Marina on the left side. The sign blends in with the fence so it is easy to miss. There is a parking lot next door by Cal Adventures.
