Children’s playground

Children’s area is modest though, there are some simple slides, swings, and some animal objects. 0-12 years old would enjoy most. For safety this area is covered by fence and time managed – Open from 9am to 16pm.

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.
