“My son turned 4 years old, and we celebrated it at Playground Haarlem. With good supervision, the six boys could learn and have fun while playing. At the end of the day, my son said, ‘This was the best birthday ever!’

Sarah Ouwerkerk, parent

“Together with my little sister, we spent an afternoon at Playground Haarlem. We could play, climb, and have fun. It was super fun, and I want to go back soon!”

Quinty Zijlmans, child

“My daughter needs to have some fun and let loose sometimes. We live in an apartment and don’t have a garden, so we often go to Playground Haarlem. I see her enjoying the nature and the freedom there!”

Julian van Schevinghuizen, parent

“Sometimes I discover a new creepy-crawly at Playground Haarlem. I then draw it in my insect book when I get home. I’ve already collected 10 of them!”

Liv Corstiaens, child

“There’s nothing better than playing outside with your child. Playground Haarlem offers a lot of possibilities; from building huts to scavenger hunts and simply climbing. I enjoy it just as much as my 8-year-old son!”
