Possibly The Best Playground In The World : Paltorps Hage

Paltorps Hage’ is amazing, fantastic, brilliant. What a find! And the website, I’m afraid, does it no justice…

Started by the owners of the farm, and open only during late Spring and throughout the Summer, ‘Paltorps Hage’ is a non-profit playground full of fun and adventure, for ALL ages. The equipment is homemade by  the farmers, largely from recycled bits and bobs.

We went with ‘uncle Nathan’ (my older brother who is now visiting from England for a week), and all had a fabulous time!

All kids enjoyed jumping down into the hay, building mountains of straw, and covering up Pappa to the eyeballs!

Alfie had a great time playing with all these chickens, and loading small baskets with eggs...

...while the pigs looked on, eagerly awaiting their turn...

Try a tractor..

... or a strange swing...

Maybe the obstacle course...

...for the little ones...

...or the treehouse...

...or the obstacle course up in the forest, over the rocks and through the moss...

...climb over the tyres...

...or under them...

Or if you’re really daring, go for the big obstacle course….

...which starts off fairly easy...

...but certainly seems....

... to get harder...

... and higher...

... and harder....

...and higher!

Alternatively, if you’re just a little bit too small, you can always settle for…

...tea in the woods...

And as if this wasn’t enough to keep you going, besides giant tyre swings, homemade wooden roundabouts, zip lines made from tractor seats, small wooden play houses under the eaves of the trees, sand pits with diggers, and a large go-cart track, there was also an inside part for when it rains, with table football, stilt walking, can knocking, egg throwing, mini mini-golf, and so on, and so on….

So if you just HAPPEN to be in the area – please go – support these wonderful people, and their wonderful wonderful playground!

    • In Sweden (!). If you happen to be living here (some of my readers are) or you happen to be visiting , the address will be on it’s website (included at beginning of my post). Hope you manage to get to it some day – it’s so much fun! 🙂

  1. I would LOVE to be “in the area”! I can not believe how many wonderful places there are in Sweden to take your children. And this one – OMG. Surely they let adult children play too – right?

    LOVE the header by the way!

    • Yes Pam – adults can play too! My husband and my brother both enjoyed it very much! Unfortunately my pregnant belly is too big to risk climbing on obstacle courses right now – maybe next year though?!
