Parks and Play Areas in Alicante

  • Los Pelaos Park

    Recommended by Martina Finch

    Located in the Playa San Juan area, Los Pelaos Park is an indoor play park for kids with a ball pall and an indoor maze. Great for rainy days or for tiring energetic kids out! The play park is used mainly for children´s parties, where the host gets to dress up as a king or queen. There is song time and face painting as well as a choice of birthday food.
