  • It reminded me of my childhood, when almost everything could be a toy and we where taking joy from the simplest and most worthless objects... But the most admirable thing is the natural way kids learn...  more »
  • Amazing. Play structures made by volunteers, kids and families. Find 10 old nails and borrow a tool, or get a container of paint. Build fantastic structures, roll down a hill in a barrel, ride the Zipline (ages 6 and up). Be sure to wear old, durable clothes because you WILL get dirty! Old school childhood fun like before we wrapped our kids in bubble wrap!
  • My daughter (7) was so shocked by the sight of this playground she completely froze. After about 10 minutes of walking around she realised how much freedom and responsibility kids have here in comparison to an ordinary playground where usually kids are overprotected. I knew she would love this place ad she is an extremely creative kid. My son (5) has autism and at first he too was just trying to grasp what is going on around him. Soon he started looking for nails to get some paint (you get tools by trading in lost nails). They happily painted and hammered away for 3 hours. What fun!
  • Cool place to being your kids to just be kids. Very rugged and fun.
  • Absolutely fantastic! A rare gem. Kids loved it!
  • Great environment for kids. Lots of things for them to do and play with.
