The Playground

  73 Juta St, Braamfontein ,   Braamfontein          +27 (60) 890 4501     31 Jan 2024
Braamfontein's Saturday Neighbourgoods Market was always a Joburg weekend favourite and when it closed at the start of the pandemic, the city lost a special something. The Playground Market launched in its place at the start of 2023. One year later, The Playground is set on a different course, having moved from its market origins to being an exciting space where adults can play. 

With its large wraparound balconies, outdoor deck and great city views, The Playground at 73 Juta Street is the place to hang out on summer weekends.

Created by co-founder of Neighbourgoods, Play Braam and headed by Adam Levy, The Playground has been reimagined (January 2024) and now takes its place along with a host of new developments in the Play Braam precinct. This includes Joburg's first rooftop basketball court, a beach club, a KFC concept store and other attractions designed to delight a youthful (and young-at-heart) crowd. Read about it in detail here
The new Playground space includes five regular food offerings, a cool retail selection, bars, live music, and plenty of ways to stay entertained that include the popular Paint and Sip sessions, board games, a pop-up roller rink, a plan for human foosball and an opportunity to play sky-high basketball. Across the road is Braamfontein's sexy new beach, set to be a much-in-demand summer attraction. Add to that a new pizza joint by Coalition and a fresh coffee spot, plus much more, and this attraction on Juta Street is set to change the way people experience weekends in Braamfontein. 
The Playground is open every Sat from 11:00 – 19:00. Entrance is free until 12:00 thereafter costs R20 p.p. Note this is a cash-free environment.
