Who knew Galway had so many playgrounds? We commend the City and County Councils (and any other organisations that have campaigned) for the variety of playgrounds available throughout the county and City. Here are a few of our favourites: Monivea Playground
Monivea Playground is located at the the junction in Monivea, behind the castle and beside the Garda Station. There is a small car park beside the playground (approx 6 cars). There are 2 climbing structures, one in shape of a tractor for youngers kids, and a taller one for the older children.
There are three different types of swings: Toddler, Nest & Regular to keep every age happily swinging. For the younger children there are a variety of bouncy horses, and a see saw. The older children will enjoy the large spinning circle, they can walk, run or sit on it (and get some one to push them)!
Monivea is a short drive from Athenry, and is well worth a visit.
Doughiska Playground is a favourite of ours, and arguably one of the best in Galway City, with a wide variety of equipment for all ages from the “hamster wheel” to huge pyramid climbing frame, double zip wires and more. Read more about Doughiska Playground here.
