Spielplatz #12: Neighborhood playground

The wire climbing structure in Dortmund

The wire climbing structure in Dortmund

Our hotel in Dortmund had a playground just across the street that was a lot of fun to play in. It had a lot of elements common to other playgrounds we found, including a soccer pitch enclosed by 30′ fences and with metal nets, a concrete table tennis table, a wire climbing area, and a sand play structure. It took Isaac a bit to figure out how to get up to the slide since you had to climb a rope ladder.

Isaac’s favorite part of the playground was the soccer pitch. We bought a soccer ball and he wanted to go out and play every day. Even after walking for miles around the city, he still had enough energy to go play soccer.

Dad liked the concrete ping pong table with the metal net. We never saw anyone playing there, though, unlike the soccer pitch.

Mom liked the sand digging and pouring area. I’m wondering if we can do something similar to our own play structure.
