The best playground in Spain..?

Antequera in Andalucia has so much to offer, the wonderful old town, Alcazaba, Lovers Rock, the Dolmens, weird rocks in the nearby El Torcal Natural park and a lagoon home to flamingos, all make a visit worthwhile.  As a family with two young toddlers we also keep an eye out for decent playgrounds on our travels.

Within the Gardens of Negrita is the Paseo Real.  An area of the Paseo has been dedicated to a brilliant new playground.  Chaos could see the towering slides from the other end of the gardens and was so excited that he ran the whole way to this spectacular looking play park, with his brother running after him.

Running to the park Antequera Andalucia

It’s amazing to watch the boy’s excitement as they tried to decide what to try first.  This park has swings, boingers, slides, a zip wire, cages, see-saw, hobbit-esque mounds with bouldering, stepping stones, a wobbly bridge, trampoline….. We’ve seen them all before but not like this.  It turns out the park is aiming to be the best playground in Spain for smaller towns with less than 50,000 inhabitants.

Antequera believe that a park like this can have an impact on the welfare of the town’s inhabitants and their society as a whole.  It definitely had an impact on our boys, they loved it and we did too, at one point all four of us were linked together hurtling down the inside of the highest slide, great fun, great park and definitely the best park in Spain we have been to…so far!
