The playground in Classens Garden

Classens’ Garden is a small, “secret” park, which lies hidden in a courtyard on Østerbro. Here you will find a small, quaint playground for the smaller children, with playhouses, monkey bars and jungle gyms, sandpits and gangways. The park is a beautiful and safe oasis as it is separated from the noise and traffic of the city – perfect for families with young children!

The playground in Langelinieanlægget

The playground in the park of Langelinie pier is a small, maritime gem for the young children. The playground lies in a park next to the Little Mermaid, and the Langelinie pavilion offers playships, a slide with a small tower, with a view of the water, sandpits, jungle gyms, swings and much more. You will also find tables and benches where you can enjoy your lunch and toilets are available if the need arises.

Konditaget Lüders

The recreational space Lüders you will find on top of a big, multistorey carpark in Nordhavn. By first glance, you won’t notice that a big, incredible playground hides on the top of the 24-meter-tall carpark - but it does! The recreational space boasts trampolines, a climbing spiral, swings, plenty of workout facilities and, of course, a most splendid view of the harbor and the Sound (Øresund).

ByOasen in De Gamles By 

Most people know the City Oasis, but do you? The City Oasis lies in the Nørrebro district of Copenhagen, in a place distinctive for its many elderly inhabitants. The City Oasis is a green breathing space in the middle of the city, which the children will love! The Oasis consists of a city-farm where the children can meet goats, chickens, rabbits, guinea pigs, mice, birds and bees. Additionally, the Oasis has raised garden beds, an outdoor kitchen with a bonfire and an orangery, which functions as a 135 m2 heated greenhouse.

You can also enjoy the basketball courts, tennis courts, table tennis tables, the big soccer field, the playground ropeway, the climbing castle, the playship, the swings and the seesaws.
