In Berlin, there are approximately 600,000 children and young people below the age of eighteen. There are approximate 1,850 public children’s playgrounds for them. Most of these playgrounds (1,840) are in public parks. Additional playgrounds are located on schoolyards and in the Berlin forests. In addition to the public children’s playgrounds, there are also private playgrounds in the green spaces of residential estates.
Stipulations for the provision of private playgrounds are contained in the Berlin Building Code (BauOBln).
