Playground in Grasbrookpark
With the first warm sunbeams, Hamburg's local playgrounds become increasingly popular. Especially in demand is the playground in the 7000 m² Grasbrookpark, located between the Marco Polo terraces and the Überseequartier underground station. Inspired by its maritime environment, a pirate ship was installed in the middle. Around it, there is a wading pool and diverse fountains and water dispensers that greatly help to cool down during the hot months. While parents can relax on one of the benches and enjoy the sun, all of the children can run around to their heart's content in Grasbrookpark. On particularly cold and muddy days, in contrast, the area is still highly suitable for a long walk with the whole family. // Spielplatz Grasbrookpark, 20457 Hamburg
