Parks and Open Spaces

Playgrounds, Skateparks, Outdoor Gyms and Multi Use Games Area

Kildare has one of the youngest populations of 0-18 years in the country with over 30% of the county's population is in this age group.  Kildare County Council recognises this and actively provides and maintains playgrounds, skate parks and Multi Use Games Areas around the County.  Playgrounds cater for children aged from 1-12 years and skateparks for older children and teens.  Working to improve the provision and types of facilites for teenageers, Kildare County Council lead a consultation with teenagers in Celbridge.  To read about this please go to our publications page to the report: “Somewhere to hang out” Teenagers’ Outdoor Recreational needs in Celbridge. A partnership perspective".

Communications Boards are being trialled in a number of playgrounds during 2023.  They will help support our children and their caregivers who communicate in different ways.  Information on how to use the Communications Board can be found under publications here.  Or contact 

The playgrounds are listed in alphabetical order.  A new window in Google Maps will open if you click on the name.
