If you’ve ever been to Bali with kids you’ll probably be aware that there has always been a serious lack of playgrounds and parks. Whether it’s to do with the culture or the transient nature of the expat community I’m not sure, but things finally seem to be changing. Leading this change is Parklife, a fabulous new park space in Canggu.
Parklife offers lots of different inside and outside areas, activities and educational play options to suit all sorts of families with all sorts of schedules.
Parklife Kids Club
The Kids Club at Parklife is open every day from 9am-5pm. For just IDR55,000 per hour (minimum 2 hours) your kids will be supervised by professional kids club and teaching staff. Indoor an outdoor activities run throughout the day and will keep kids happy and also stimulated with creative play.
Outside the regular hours (9am-5pm) extended hours from 7am-9am and 5pm-9pm are also available by reservation at least 24 hours in advance. Only the extended hours need to be reserved, regular hours are on a drop-in basis.
This is an ideal childcare option for parents who want a little time to work, shop or just relax. Whether you live in Bali or are visiting on holiday the flexibility is perfect!

If you are looking for a little bit more structure for your days, Parklife’s playschool might be a better option for your family. Running from 9am – 3pm Monday through Friday this playschool offers playful and joyous learning for early years.
During their days at Parklife kids will have the chance to play indoors and outdoors within the safety of the Parklife area and in the upstairs studio space. Activities are structured throughout the day with periods of free play, learning games, crafts, group activities, and some calming downtime as well.
For more information about the playschool hours and pricing please contact Parklife by email.
While you’re at Parklife your kids are sure to be busy and entertained. You have the option to leave them with the professional childcare staff, but why not stick around and enjoy the gorgeous views, excellent food and fast wi-fi?
The cafe at Parklife is a beautifully designed space for relaxing and enjoying a delicious food that rivals any of Canggu’s foodie hotspots. Fresh ingredients are the focus of the food; delicious salads, sandwiches and mezze are just a few options. The kids menu has plenty of options for even the pickiest of eaters and sweet treats for afters as well.
Grab an excellent cup of coffee, pull up a comfy chair and enjoy this light, airy space any time of day.
The Happiest Hour for Parents at Parklife Canggu
Sunset is an especially wonderful time to be sitting out by the rice paddies watching the sun go down. This social space allows parents to take advantage of happy hour in a family-friendly environment where their kids can carry on playing, watch a movie in the outdoor cinema, join a glowing disco or see a magic show. Check the Parklife Facebook Page for more info.
Happy Hour runs daily from 5-6pm with selected beers, wines and cider at great prices. Why not round up the day with friends and family with a cold drink and spectacular Canggu views.
Events and Classes
There’s even more to look forward to at Parklife if you can believe it. Classes and workshops for your kids (and adults) are an integral part of expanding their minds and bodies in a fun way. Dance, drama, sound healing and more are scheduled in the upstairs studio.
The schedule of pop-up events, workshops, meet-ups and parties can all be found on the Parklife website: www.parklifebali.com
You can also host your own event at Parklife. Birthday party packages are available and take all the hassle out of running around trying to organize everything yourself.
