Child’s play

The Observer - - Comment & Analysis -

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.
