The 5 best playgrounds

The Traffic Playground

If you need a fun, yet educational break this holiday, Trafiklegepladsen is a good place to start. This is where kids can learn how to behave in traffic without getting themselves (or their parents) hurt.

The playground has a traffic lane with signs, driving lanes, signals, road markings and cycle lanes just like in real traffic, only without fast moving people and cars all around you. The vehicles are ‘moon cars’ and there is even a fully equipped petrol station so that 5-14 years olds can learn how to fill a tank. The younger 2-5 year olds may learn the rules of traffic by jumping aboard a go-cart, a three wheeled bike or a bike with a trailer.

Normally rush hour hits the playground when several daycares and kindergartens head this way at the same time, but during holidays there is lots of space in the small roads and lanes. During holidays the ‘regular’ activities at the playground, such as seesaws, swings and slides, are also easier to get to.

The Playground of Østre Anlæg

Holidays are a perfect time for dressing up as a pirate with an eye patch and sabre and go for adventures on the imaginary seven seas. Every kid in town may be a pirate at the playground at Østre Anlæg, which, among its many activities, has an old ship from which you can catch imaginary crocodiles and fight the other pirates.

Or if you dream about becoming a sports star, you may borrow a football or tennis racket and pretend to be Ronaldo or Federer for a while on the playground’s football fields or tennis courts. For the mums and dads, the playground has lots of benches and tables where you may spread your picnic whilst keeping an eye on the kids.

Or just enjoy the beautiful surroundings which include a lake, bushes and trees in bloom and not least the handsome building close by housing the National Museum of Art.

The Electronic Playground at the Ørsted Park

f you need some extra help driving the kids away from the computer and convincing them to spend a day outdoors, you might want to bring them to a playground, which has taken computer games from indoors to outdoors.

In the Ørsted Park it is all about getting the tools to react with light and sounds just like proper computer games. But contrary to sitting down in your room, where the only exercise you’ll get is moving the joystick or keyboard, you’ll now have to hop, dance and move your body around to get the technology going. Besides the electronic area, the playground also has a ‘regular’ area with bikes, moon cars, slides etc.

The Nature Centre in Vestamager

Sometimes both children and adults just need to tumble about in a space where you aren’t afraid of messing up a well-arranged flower bed or disturbing grandparents snoozing away on a garden bench.

The Nature Centre in Vestamager is just such a place. It is an immense area of meadows and woods with camp fire places, watering holes, where you may try catching tadpoles, playing areas designed in the shape of a ship and a forest of strangely shaped trees. Inside you’ll find an experience centre, where the kids may learn how to build a kite or paint stones for playing hopscotch, which they can take outside and put to immediate use. Or they can try testing their balance and strength at ‘parkour’ a movement game, which takes you through, over, and under a set of hurdles as fast as possible.

And while the kids find various outlets for their energy, the adults may relax with an ice cream or coffee in the café.

Naturcenter Vestamager

The Playground of Frederiksberg Gardens

Once it was a vegetable garden, then it became a rather old-fashioned playground and April, last year, the playground of Frederiksberg finally got its immense makeover, which has turned it into one of the city’s loveliest places to bring the kids during holidays. Not just to let the kids enjoy playing here, but also to experience the interesting ways in which the playground and its activities have been designed in accordance with the romantically landscaped garden.

The activities are made out of materials such as cold steel, granite and wood and consist, among other things, of a water-spraying butterfly, gilded metal shapes and hammocks where you may take a quick holiday nap. The park also has trees for climbing and a sandpit for those more interested in playing with sand than with water. The playground suits small kids best, but anyone may find amble sources of entertainment here.
