Plaswijck Park is wildly popular, and it’s not hard to see why – it pretty much checks all the boxes to keep your kids entertained no matter what they like and what the weather is doing.
Plaswijck Park has a mid-sized water park for when the weather is warm. It has a huge indoor playground for when the weather is miserable. There’s quite a few excellent outdoor playgrounds for when the weather is fine.
There’s an old-fashioned merry-go-round, a haunted house, and a zip-line. There’s a large and very detailed go-cart track, where kids need to follow the actual road rules, read street signs, and generally get comfortable play-driving. There’s an animal park with a large petting zoo full of hares and goats that are perfectly tame.
It is not a cheap park to visit, but if you are a local, you should seriously consider buying an annual pass.
We live clear on the other side of Rotterdam to Plaswijckpark, and it’s a little bit of a trek for us to get there, but I still bought annual passes for our family – it’s such a brilliant facility.
It’s more than a playground, but less than a theme park. It’s more than a kinderboerderij but less than a zoo. It’s got water play for hot days, a huge indoor playground for wet weater, and age appropriate options for all ages.
If you lived close to the park, it would be a great option to buy the annual pass for a drop-in “what are we going to do today” option. For us, it is more of a big day out, but we do still come semi-regularly, and the kids always have an absolute ball.
