Healthy Playground

Gyeonggi Children's Museum

The Healthy Playground helps kids to understand the basic principles of exercise science and learn how to maintain a fit and healthy body. How high can you shoot a ball into the air? Try to move giant flowers in the sky. If you push the bicycle pedals hard enough, the giant flowers will rotate. Take a deep breath and be brave enough to take on rock climbing. The exhibits in the playground will make your mind and body healthier. (This playground is designed for pre-school to elementary school students.)
