Now and then I hope to post pictures of playgrounds I have visited from home as well as from abroad. I really enjoyed seeing different playgrounds overseas and I think it will be really interesting to compare them to ones at home.

I visited Stockholm in July 2011, and particularly loved this playground that I stumbled on in Vasastaden. Vasaparken itself was a fantastic park, full of endless activities with putt putt golf, a cafe and a playing field that turns into a an Ice Rink in Winter. I think the playground is beginning to show its age especially in the rubber wetpour, but the modern and traditional play elements still allow it to be a really functional and playful space.

 

The Landscpae Architects Grontmij won the prestigious Sienapriset award for the park in 2008.
