For a child in Vienna, boredom is a word not included in their dictionary. Child-development and well-being is very much a key concern in this city. Aside from a lot of cultural (arts, music, dance), and sports development programs, play is an everyday enjoyment for all kids. The city sees to it that every neighborhood has a playground. Sometimes, not just one. In our area alone, there is a playground just a minute's walk from the door of the building. Another is on the opposite side where you just cross a pedestrian lane. Walk on the other cluster of buildings and there'd be more playgrounds, complete with slides, seesaw and swings. There'd also be a big sandbox in which contents are replaced on certain intervals.
Rides (animals and vehicles) are also prolific, not just in the malls but also on the streets. Also, family fun parks have been sprouting in each district which promises really great enjoyment for the kids. I'd post photos of them than bore you with the stories...smile! =)
