It’s no secret that our boys love to be and play outside, no matter the weather nor the temperature. Especially Liam loves to climb and pick branches, shells and rocks. This is why we try to find nice playgrounds for toddlers. As we were exploring the National Park de Alde Feanen at the beginning of the month, I have put a summary of the funnest playgrounds in and around Alde Feanen. Have a look at this video and see if you can recognize some of them! Did you recognize them? No problem, here they are:

Playground at the visitors center of NP De Alde Feanen

We visited the National Park De Alde Feanen for the first time during Fête de la nature and we felt in love with this playground. I call it “playground”, but it is much more than a simple playground. It was opened at the beginning of the year and has an infinity of amusements: slides, climb trails, herbs gardens, insect hotels, tractors … The good thing is that there’s entertainment for all ages, even for the younger ones there’s small slide in the form of a ship (I haven’t seen this little one in any other playground). Liam’s favorite thing here is a wooden house filled with hay!! This one reminded me to the fairy tail the three little pigs, but don’t worry, the house won’t fall apart if you blow it.

The visitors center also organizes activities all year round. Our favorite so far was baking bread on a fire!!


De Pettebosk is a forest for nature education and very close to the visitors center. In this forest, you can follow a “rugzakroute“, a marked backpack route, (I will write a post about it) or walk around the paths, solve assignments, climb mounds, jump from tree trunk to tree trunk, swim or just simply enjoy the nature.
