Playground is an Easy trail in the SkyPark at Santa's Village Bike Park trail system.

Marked for beginners, Playground forgoes the obstacles and jumps that other trails in the park have, and instead sticks with a gradual downhill single track trail that weaves amongst the forest and trees. It is simple to follow, and there are no hard angled turns, making it great for riders first hitting the park's groomed trails.

From the trailhead at the back of the Pub, riders will take the Upline path on a steady climb about 300' up in elevation. Playground shares the first portion of its course with the Deck The Halls trail, however soon splits off at a clearly signed fork. From there it descends through the trees, weaving through forest on an enduro course. The only point of note is that it intersects with the Lower Sleigh Ride Trail, however almost immediately veers off at another clearly signed fork.  From here it rolls over undulating terrain before coming to an end right at the Pub.

On of the only dedicated Easy trails in the park, Playground was constructed to introduce riders to a slower pace enduro course. Aside from the brief intersection with Lower Sleigh Ride, riders on Playground don't need to worry about overlapping with more high speed or aggressive course riders.
