The closest playground to our apartments can be found between the three metro stations: Ferenciek tere, Astoria and Kálvin tér.
Its name Károlyi-kert (Károlyi Garden) derives from the Károlyi noble family who owned this area for more than a century and a half.
The park has been designed mainly according to the needs of families with children as a huge part of the area was turned into a playground.
In the middle of the square there is a fountain and a meadow with flowers.
On two sides of the park there are the playgrounds for smaller and bigger ones with swings, jungle gyms, teeter-totters, slides, etc. Behind the fountain you will find a long sandbox with some artificial shading above it.
It takes 7 minutes to get there on foot. Count at least an hour for this program.
