Hilton Head is not just about miles of beautiful beaches. Parks and playgrounds are also popular places for visitors with kids. If you need a change of scenery during your vacation, Hilton Head Island’s best parks and playgrounds will not disappoint. Check out Beachside Hilton Head’s favorite spots to play.
The Greg Russell Harbour Town Playground is one of the most visited parks on the island. It was named after a famous musician who performed for decades under the Liberty Oak.
The park features a nature-packed environment and a tree house constructed around the oak tree. Kids will have a grand time enjoying different play equipment, including swings and slides, while feeling the comfort of soft sand under their feet.
2. Coligny Beach Park Fountain
If the waves are too intimidating for the kids, a day in Coligny Beach Park Fountain solves the problem. The award-winning, oceanfront park features a dancing fountain where kids can splash around. Put on your swimsuits, pack a few snacks, and head over for some fun in the sun in the safety of the park.
3. Celebration Park
Only moments from Coligny Beach Park, Celebration Park is another famous park on the island. It is a large park featuring scenic nature views and lots of fun activities. Unlike Coligny Beach Park — which has quick access to the beach — Lowcountry Celebration Park focuses on being the venue for discovering Hilton Head’s culture and environment.
This 10-acre park houses numerous play and entertainment facilities such as The Adventure Playground, The Perimeter Walk, the Open Pavilion, and fitness centers.
4. Chaplin Community Park
Located between Singleton Beach Road and Burkes Beach Road, Chaplin Community Park is the largest park on the island. It is the perfect spot for kids and adults (and even dogs) with its wide range of play and fitness facilities.
Visiting Chaplin Community Park gives families access to picnic pavilions, basketball courts, tennis complex, hiking trails, and playgrounds. When the group suddenly wants to cool off, they can simply take the pathways to the beach.
5. Jarvis Creek Park
This 53-acre park is another adventure-packed place for the whole family. Jarvis Creek Park excites its visitors with its different features, including wooden bridges, a large lake, workout stations, picnic shelters, and open fields.
Jarvis Creek Park also serves the PRO Wellness Project, which aims to promote a healthy lifestyle among the residents and tourists. This project is open to everyone and gives participants access to cross-training equipment.
Hilton Head Island is home to many parks and playgrounds perfect for every member of the family. Whether you need to find new activities for the kids or simply want to take a break from the beach, you can visit one (or all of) the island’s popular parks and playgrounds.
