"Mary Anderssons Lekplats" in Malmö is just one of the city's countless amazing themed playgrounds!

If you're visiting Malmö with children you should take the opportunity to get in touch with your inner child and spoil the children you're travelling with by visiting a themed playground! Or, maybe tour all of them?! Perhaps starting with Mary Anderssons lekplats?

Malmö prides itself on being the "city of parks", but I think we could definitely add "city of playgrounds" to that! More specifically, themed playgrounds. Since moving here I've noticed that many of Malmö's playgrounds are exceptionally imaginative and creative. Within Malmö, there are more than 20 individually themed playgrounds! Themes vary from spiders, theatre, circus to space, music and more. Mary Andersson was a writer who grew up a stone's throw away from the location of the playground bearing her name. The playground depicts a piece of local history from the 1930s and 40s, when Mary grew up and this part of town was one of the poorer parts and located on the city's outskirts. The cute and carefully constructed little houses exemplify residences in the area almost a century ago and provide endless opportunities for playing creatively - and they're also sheer happiness to look at. They're even lit up from the inside after dark.

Mary Anderssons Lekplats is without a doubt the kind of playground I would have loved to visit as a child. I promise that a visit will have your inner child marvel and rejoice at the sight of those perfect little houses and put a smile on your face.
