Broughton Road Playground

{Edinburgh} Broughton Road Playground

We have another short playground review to share with you today. This is a playground that we probably wouldn’t have made a trip especially to see, but we tagged it on to our recent visit to King George V Park after realising it was just a short walk away.

Broughton Road Playground

Broughton Road playground is a well kept and decent sized playground, probably aimed more at toddlers and younger children, but my 11 year old also enjoyed the climbing unit and the basket swing. My 7 year old was fully in his element, so the playground got a big thumbs up from him.

With buses stopping right outside the playground gates, it’s also fairly easy to get to. There’s an ice cream shop on the next block too, which is mostly open in the afternoons and evenings.
