Stopped here whilst walking by - fun gigantic sculpture to climb on. Be careful as it has sand in it and was slippery. Kids would love it.

We visited the Aardvark which was developed in front of the library and finished some years ago. Seems like it would be a nice place for kids to gather during the spring and summer.

To get a great view of the aardvark go into the library and go up to the 5th floor terrace. There is an elevator. Sure, the aardvark just lays there but how can you not laugh.

This is a huge piece of art near the new library near the city centre. It's big and nice as kids have a lot if fun climbing it. Not entirely without risks. Be sure they have old cloths on....as the material eats pants.
