"Let's meet at the park!"

If you are a parent of a highly energietic runaway or a mum of twins or a special needs kid these five simple words can strike fear in your heart. Not only is your catchup going to be stressful as you run around like a maniac trying to keep an eye on the prize at all times, but it's absolutely exhausting and certainly doesn't fill your cup the way a meetup with friends should.

So here we have six of the best fenced kids playgrounds that will ensure you can have a lovely time chilling with coffee and friends while your littlies run wild in the safety of an enclosed environment!
