Kids Castle is located within Central Park at 425 Wells Road, Doylestown, Pennsylvania. Doylestown is directly north of Philadelphia and about two hours from the York / Harrisburg area.
Central Park is a large park with all the usual park elements: soccer fields, playgrounds, a walking trail, and pavilions. There’s also the centerpiece of the park, Kids Castle playground.
When pulling into the parking lot, it’s easy to spot the most popular feature of the park. A short walk from the parking lot on a paved trail takes you to Kids Castle, a huge wooden play structure with several stories of labyrinth-like passages.
The passages inside are great for little kids, but there were places that adults would have difficultly fitting. Some of the passages are smaller than other areas.
There is a path around the perimeter of the inside that is tallest and best for older children. Further in, there are chutes that even a 3-year-old would need to crouch down to enter. Throughout, there is themed artwork to look at on the interior and exterior of the Castle.
One corner has a popular “elevator” which takes kids, one at a time, down to the lower level. The other favorite feature is the three-story twisted tube slides.
While it is easy to lose your child in the complex passages of the castle, there is a fence around the play area. This makes it a bit easier to know your child hasn’t left the immediate area of the playground. We asked our kids to come to the castle windows to let us know where they were located.
In recent years, other play structures have been added around the castle. There is a tot lot, pirate ship playground, and many other play elements.
This playground can get busy, especially on the weekends and during the summer. There is a little shade in the seating area, so plan accordingly if it’s a hot day.
Kids Castle Restrooms
Kids Castle restrooms are located on other other side of the parking lot from the playground. It may take a few minutes to walk to the restrooms from the playground.
Things to Remember
- If you enter the address of the park, 425 Wells Road, into your GPS, it could take you into a neighborhood. Using Waze for navigation seemed to work for the address. Using “Central Park” or “Doylestown Township Municipal Building” for GPS directions that will most likely lead you to the park entrance.
- The restrooms are a bit of a walk on the other side of the parking lot, in a pavilion near the soccer fields. To avoid an emergency, keep in mind the restrooms could take a few minutes to walk to.
- Since it’s easy to get lost within the structure, prepare your child beforehand with where to meet you if you get separated.
