The playground in the Tuna park is really not much more than a normal playground. But sometimes that’s exactly what you need.
The Tuna park is located in Tuna village in the heart of the island. Here lay before a parsonage dating back to the 18th century. The parsonage was torn down in the 1950’s, but the courtyard’s old and beautiful linden tree is still here and now stands tall over this park.
The Tuna park has long been a gathering place for the islanders, for many years the island’s midsummer celebrations were held here, but especially children now appreciate the playground that is located here. Playgrounds are otherwise not so common on the island. But this park is also a great place to take a much needed break during the trip and many people stay here to picnic. Otherwise, the Tuna Tavern and Ven’s Cultural Center are just a few minutes away.
By the way, don’t miss out on greeting the cat that lives here in the neighborhood. He might look a bit old and cranky, but he surely loves people and especially children, and never misses an opportunity for a purring chat.
When you’re done here and the kids are happy, it might be time for you to take the road to Kyrkbacken. The kids will have many more chances to play. Ven is an island filled with adventure!
