This city has several playgrounds for kids, actually more than 100, the first ones dates back to 1876-1879 in HC Ørstedsparken and Østre Anlæg. They have of course all been modernised several times, from 2008-2012 all Copenhagen playgrounds will undergo renovation again.
Often you will find them in parks, some even staffed Monday-Friday, which means the kids can borrow bicycles and play stuff, and they have a restroom But you will also find some right in the centre of Copenhagen. If you are passing by a housing complex with an open court yard, most likely you will find a super nice playground inside.
Here you can find playgrounds in the inner city:
Classens Have, access from Classensgade and Arendalsgade
Kastellet, by Gustavkirken
Langelinjepark, by Nordre Toldbod
Østre Anlæg, Stockholmsgade 24. Large playground with giant swings, climbing castle built into the slope, old ship and ball area. Popular place, also in winter for snow sledging.

Hauser Plads 16. Is temporarily closed dur to a building project. Will reopen in a new shape in 2012.
Israels Plads, by Ahlefeldtsgade. Nice new playground for older kids, all in a huge sandbox. Bring your own sandbox tools if you’re with a toddler. At weekdays the playground is now and then crowded with kids from the local school.

The playground has been updated since google drove by, looks like this now and even has a baby swing.
Christianshavns Vold, Panterens bastion
Christianshavns Vold, Christainshavns Voldgade 36, at Elefantens Bastion. This is a 7000 m2 playground, located at the scenic surroundings of Christianshavns Vold, which is a part of the historic Copenhagen fortifications. A ring of fortifications was built around Copenhagen from 1858 to 1918 to defend the capital from enemies, and many of these fortifications are undergoing a revitalisation project to restore and secure the buildings to make it visible and attractive for the public.
The playground has staff on work: Monday-Thursday 9.30am- 5pm, Friday 10am- 5pm, but is otherwise always open. This is one of our local playgrounds, and we are quite fond of it. It has recently been updated, with new swings including a baby swing, neat little sandbox, a mini slide and more. Spacious for bicycling, basketball or just running around, and always a good chance to meet some other kids. This is a view of the green play area, with the old bunkers transformed into benches. Cute.
Bumped into this playground, never seen it before, hidden behind Helligåndskirken- Church of The Holy Ghost på Strøget. It is a kindergarten playground and only open for public after 5pm and in weekends.
