A man has built a playground for refugees on Lesbos so that “the children of Lesbos can go back to being kids”. Here are some of the most impressive playgrounds around the world.
Mulighedernes Park, Denmark
The dragon at the heart of the park has climbing knobs, a double slide and balance beams. The park is made entirely of sustainable wood.
Bounce Below, Wales
Hidden underground in a 176-year-old disused cavern that is twice the size of St Paul’s Cathedral, Bounce Below is home to three giant trampolines.
Crocheted Playground, Japan
Hakone’s openair museum is home to a gorgeous rainbow net playground. The crochet forms new shapes while children play.
Playground at Parque Gulliver, Spain
Children run amok on and in a massive model of Gulliver from Gulliver’s Travels, which features slides and stairways hidden in his body and clothes.
