Places to Play Pretend

Looking for something fun and unique to do with your child this weekend? We loved this feature in Red Tricycle of 11 Spots where creative kids can play pretend! Our neighbors to the East got a nod with the Adventure Playground in Berkeley. 


The Adventure Playground at the Berkeley Marina, is a unique outdoor facility where staff encourage children to play and build creatively. Children are encouraged to climb, play, hammer, saw and paint in this exploratory space. So get out, have some fun, and let the creativity flow this weekend!
