Children’s playground

Children’s area is modest though, there are some simple slides, swings, and some animal objects.

For safety this area is covered by fence and time managed – Open from 9:00 to 16:30.

I like here very much just to enjoy nature and laughter voice of children –
We bring lunch when we go there and relaxing at picnic table.
