Visiting a park can be a refreshing experience for people stuck in the hustle and bustle of life. It's a place to get away from all the noise and pollution and clear one's head. Annie Samples, a mom of four who goes by @annieineventyrland on Instagram, shared a video highlighting unique things about parks and playgrounds in Denmark that people might not have known about. The mother starts the video by walking into the park with her children and a text overlay mentions eight points about Danish parks that impressed her.

Samples lived in Copenhagen and most people there lived in apartments. She said, "So, our parks function as our backyards and are super important for family time and socializing." The woman mentions parks are essential to their lifestyle and that they are required to meet the people's needs properly. The first point she shares is how every park has clean public restrooms with diaper-changing stations. She is grateful that the tax that the government took from people is being utilized for something good.

Secondly, people would get hungry when spending a lot of time at parks, which is why many of them had restaurants that served everything from tea and coffee to beer and wine. She clarified that consuming alcohol in Danish parks was legal. Some playgrounds were staffed and had indoor play areas with board games and other activities to keep kids engaged. These places also sometimes kept pets that kids could learn about.

The mother mentions that many parks hosted community programs. She said, "All three of my boys have been taught how to ride bikes by the same Trafilegepladsen staff member." Moving on, whenever it got warm in Copenhagen, playgrounds were a great place to "cool off" as they had splash pools. The same went for the winter season, as some parks would have ice skating rinks. In fact, if people were feeling too cold, they could legally build a fire in the park while roasting some hot dogs.

She continues, "Another thing that I love is that there are scooters and skates in some of the main public parks of Copenhagen. So, even those with less mainstream interests can enjoy what the city has to offer." The mother concluded the video by stating how she thought the city was doing a good job of "providing the perfect backdrop to let the good times roll." People were quite amazed by all the amenities Danish parks had to offer and put down their thoughts in the comment section.

@ileedutton said, "The whole thing surprised me. The US is a far cry from this." @aurahaurholm shared, "Some of these things surprised me and I was born here. Not been visiting enough of our playgrounds obviously. Thanks for the information." Another individual, @the_real_taluhahula, commented, "Also, that someone working in the park can make a living, have affordable medical care and plenty of vacation time." @dasistjo_gc said, "These things are normal everywhere in Europe, including Romania, where I come from."
