Tårnlegepladsen (UK)

The newest playground in Fælledparken is a miniature model of Copenhagen's most famous towers. For Copenhageners that love their city, it's a fun thing to look at. For children it's a very well-functioning playground.

The Tower Playground comprises mini versions of five of Copenhagen's most famous towers, which is connected by footbridges and slides for interactive play. With the latest technological backup, the playground is geared to extreme physical activity, and just a touch of competition. Children can go on electronic chases over the roofs of the Stock Exchange, solve a picture puzzle in the Round Tower or make political speeches from the top of the City Hall. The playground also adds to children's knowledge of the history of the city's iconic towers.

One of the main-attractions of the playground is a house of mirrors: a rebuild version of an old, worn-out building, with disfigured and playful mirrors on gables and doors. The house of mirrors has been mentioned in one of the world's biggest design- and architectureblogs, Dezeen Magazine, and the house has won the Red Dot Design Award. The Tower Playground has also won the Danish Design Award 2012 in the "Service- and experiencedesign" category.
