Best Start - Where to play in Swansea

Ideas for play around Swansea.

Where to play

Your house and garden - on a rainy afternoon dig out the board games, Lego or paints. Make up a play or get the karaoke machine cranked up. If the weather's okay get out in the garden and play with a football or on the trampoline. Give the kids a corner of the garden to work on and grow their own plants or just make mud pies.

The local park or playground - if there's no room to kick a football or ride a bike in your garden then get yourself down to the prom or local park where you can really stretch your legs! Search parks and green spaces

The beach - Swansea is so lucky to be situated on the doorstep of the UK's first 'area of outstanding natural beauty' and we have miles of sandy beaches which are a child's perfect playground all year round. Build a sand castle or a boat to sail in as the tide comes in, divert the river with dams, play cricket or rounders, climb a rock, swim and surf in the sea! Swansea beaches
