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 Teaterlekplatsen?
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 and circus to space, music and more.
Theatre-themed Teaterlekplatsen is one of Malmö’s most popular playgrounds, infused with colourful elements from the stage and theatre, such as a ticket booth, a “carousel” made out of different sceneries and, as seen in the picture, a two-story castle, all very inviting – if only I’d fit! Several small stages allow the children to put on acts of their own, one of them even comes with mobile sceneries, props and seats for an audience. For me as a child it would’ve been a dream come true – we were always putting on plays, forcing our parents to watch! Where were playgrounds like this when I grew up?
Easy to find, on the outskirts of Pildammsparken, it’s the ultimate place for children to explore and enact their fantasies! So sit back and let the children perform for you, or perhaps act out your own dreams of being on stage?
