Observatorielundens Parklek

Surrounding area: Observatorieludens Parklek is located near the Rådmansgatan station along the green line. It is situated behind the Stockholm School of Economics on the far side of the park. Along Sveavägen there are a number of shops and restaurants. The playground is located less than a five minute walk from a public library (Stockholms stadsbibliotek) with a large selection of children's books in many different languages.

Age groups: The playground is most appropriate for toddlers, preschool, and middle school children.

Features: At the entrance of the park there is a zip line which is most appropriate for older children. There is a distinct toddler area separated by a low fence and there is a third main area ideal for preschoolers and middle school age children. This area is mostly covered with rubber padding.
The playground features include:
In the toddler area:
In the area for older children:
  • A large structure with a tube slide, an open slide, bridges, monkey bars and more. This structure is most appropriate for middle school children as it is quite tall.
  • A smaller castle themed structure with a slide, a climbing rope, and rock climbing wall.
  • A pretend play spring car
  • Two ground-level trampolines
  • Two stand-alone slides on the side of a small hill
  • A ping-pong table
  • A web balance structure
  • Four spinning structures
  • A set of differing height pull-up bars
  • A set of swings, including a bucket swing and a large basket swing
  • A basketball half court
  • A full youth-sized basketball court with small goals
Accessibility: The playground has a basket swing but does not have other accessible equipment.

Safety: Most of the playground is padded with rubber. The swings and zip line have soft sand and the toddler area is fully fenced in but the rest of the playground is not. Visibility is good within each area but because the playground is narrow and on a hill, it is hard to see children from across the playground.

Shade: The playground is consistently shaded with a large building on one side and a large hill on the other.

Seating: There are a few benches around the playground, primarily along the basketball court and in the toddler area.

Picnic area: There are low picnic tables in the toddler area and regular size picnic tables throughout the rest of the playground.

Restroom and changing table: There is an automatic public toilet with a changing table near Rådmansgatan station.

Strollers and bikes: There is no designated stroller parking but a lot of space to bring and park a stroller. There are no bike racks in the playground but there are some along Sveavägen and near the station.
