We are looking forward to the holidays with our children.
For those of you who are staying in the city and are thinking about what activities to do or places to visit to have fun with the kids.

Taking advantage of the fact that the weather will be good and that children love and need to play outdoors, with all this in mind you can't miss these recommendations of outdoor parks in our city.

With this in mind, today I bring you 9 playgrounds that you can visit in the city and spend some playtime with your children that will surely become your main happy places.

These recommendations are in different parts of the city which gives you the opportunity to decide or maybe take a tour and visit them all. 
Let's start


After my first list with 10 playgrounds in our city Eindhoven, I received several messages from our Expat Kids in Eindhoven parents who gave us other places to visit with our children so today I add these new places to our list of recommendations. Thanks to these parents for reading and keeping in touch.


1. Speelpark de Splinter

Splinter's Speelpark is an outdoor playground in and around Eindhoven. Children up to the age of 12 have space to play safely and wonderfully. Literally, because the playground of the Henri Dunantpark in Woensel-Noord is the size of seven football pitches. It has different play equipment, a construction corner, a petting zoo, a pirate ship, two playgrounds and two toddler pools.
There are cabanas with tables where parents can stay and share with their family or other parents.

2. Speeltuinvereniging Philipsdorp

The playground has an area of approximately 7500 square metres and is completely fenced.
The playground is characterised by a good overview, which is especially appreciated by parents with small children. From the terrace you have a view of the whole area.
A separate part of the playground is designed for the little ones.
Here you will find seesaws, swings for toddlers, merry-go-rounds and the sandpit for small children with the playground.
Crossing the wide walkway you reach the "territory" of the older kids
for older children, with a variety of climbing and sliding equipment.
Next to the terrace is the large sandpit where big and small play together. As you move away from the terrace, you come to the equipment for the older children.

The design of the park is inspired by the English landscape style and is full of surprises. Characteristic of the park are the hills and slopes with beautiful views, forests and wide grass plains, large water features and winding fens. Three elliptical meadows are located centrally in the park. There are two pastures where cows graze. The third meadow is the playground. On this large playground, residents can organize activities together. This ensures liveliness in the park.
