A Guide to EDINBURGH's Placesforkids
Edinburgh has many fabulous placesforkids ranging from some of the best parks and gardens ( which are free for everyone ) to the not so free cinemas, bowling and leisure centres.
We do not have any links to any of these places as yet because Edinburgh business has yet to waken up to the fact that the net is a cheap effective way to advertise their wares but we are trying to put together an index of the various places where kids like to hang out, play together, and have fun together. Like the other indices of edinburgh-places.co.uk this one will never be finished but will be added to as new placesforkids evolve.
Please feel free to point out any omissions on our part. They are as always not meant but mearly oversites.
Some of the best thing in Edinburgh are free even for kids so we will start of with a list of Edinburgh's freebies
