The Tower Playground - an interactive playground for all ages in Copenhagen
If you happend to spend the day in Copenhagen today I'm sure you'll agree with me that it was perfect for outdoor activities. My family and I went to the very popular playground in Fælledparken on Østerbro called "Tårnlegepladsen" - in English called The Tower Playground, which is a pretty new and extraordinary playground built around five of the most famous towers in Copenhagen - City Hall, Round Tower, The Marble Church, Exchange Tower and Our Savior's Church.
The playground is an interactive playground that has a climbing structure that encourages and challenges children not only to be very active phsycially, but also to interact with each other and the surroundings. Moreover the playground learns you about historical facts about Copenhagen's most famous towers. In other words this playground is perfect for both toddlers and older children as it has swings, spiderswings, slides, a sandbox and small cabins. But it doesen't stop here - one thing that really stroke me is that the playground also has a mirrorhouse. Not something you see on all playgrounds! Here you and your children can have lots of fun together when looking in the mirrows as some of them make you look extremely taller, smaller, thicker and thinner. And if you're into architecture you probably find it interesting that the mirrorhouse recently won the Red Dot Design Award 2012.
The Tower Playground has it all - it even has toilets, changing facilities, lots of benches and tables and is a perfect place to grill in the afternoon with your family and friends! And if you have children that are fascinated by helicopters you might be lucky to see a rescue helicopter right above your face as it's delivering patients to the Danish Royal Hospital, which is situated right next to the playground and has a helipad on top of the building!
