How does your organization contribute to Billund becoming the Capital of Children, where children learn through play and grow up to be creative world citizens?
We see Play is the goal, in and of itself. In play, we grow and learn, and at WOW PARK, we celebrate physical play to stimulate creativity, curiosity, and community. Hence perfectly aligned with the vision of the Capital of children.
– Jacob Hindhede, co-owner of WOW PARK.
WOW PARK is a brand new play and amusement park in the wildest forest just outside Billund. Here, you will find wild rides, crazy challenges, and good times for the whole family. You can have fun together all day – climbing in the trees, running around the forest, playing with water, and even exploring underground – all in a safe and beautiful environment.
Spanning an area larger than 40 soccer fields, WOW Park provides plenty of open space and fresh air, featuring sky-high fun in the wilderness set to a chorus of happy laughter and beautiful birdsong.
How does your organization make Billund alive as the Capital of Children – where children learn through play and become creative citizens of the world?
Play is the goal, in and of itself. In play, we grow and learn, and at WOW PARK, we celebrate play to stimulate creativity, curiosity, and community. We also value physical play and imaginative adventure in the great outdoors – ensuring that we never lose our childhood joy and passion. We wish to build and share a stronger connection with nature and to invite both children and adults to play together in the forest.
What is in it for children?
At WOW PARK, we have a mix of climbing and crawling, swinging and sliding, freedom and fun. The WOW PARK wilderness provides intensity and tranquility for all children and their families.
