Playgrounds provide both supervised and unsupervised activities for families and school children.
Most playgrounds have a wading pool, a playfield and various playground equipment. Some playgrounds have playfields that are turned into ice rinks in winter. The equipment and opportunities for activities vary by the playground.
School children are offered snacks at playgrounds on schooldays. Charges apply to the snacks. Children must be enrolled in the snack programme. In summer, the playgrounds that stay open serve a free-of-charge hot meal to all children and teenagers under 16 years of age.
Local residents are welcome to join the planning of playground activities.
Playgrounds organize supervised indoor and outdoor activities for children, families and young people in their early teens for 7-8 hours per day between 9:00 and 17:00 on weekdays.
