Adults traveling to unknown cities with children are often at a disadvantage. To ensure an unforgettable family holiday they always have to be prepared for their kids’ needs as well.
Whatever age your children are, I would suggest you visit the Olimpia Park. It is not just a modern playground but a football / basketball field and a huge meadow where you could have a picnic in nice weather. The park is in the tourist area between the Parliament and the Margaret Bridge (Margit híd) next to the Danube.
In warm weather the huge trees provide enough shade to make the temperature feel more comfortable. There is also a water tap that comes in handy.
The free toilets are close to the entrance. There’s also a baby changing room.
The playground area is covered with a rubber mat that prevents possible injuries.
A unique jungle gym made of rope is a favourite with many kids.
A huge ’ship’ made of wood will keep your kids busy for a while.
For smaller ones you’ll find some swings as well.
There are many benches nearby so parents can keep an eye on their kids.
Margaret Island (Margit-Sziget) could be the next stop on this children’s activity day.
Either go one stop with tram no. 4 or 6 or take a 10 minute walk through the Margaret Bridge to reach the southern entrance of the island.
