Froggy playground is located in the hilly area of Békásmegyer. The whole place is inspired by frogs, their habitat, and the toys remind us of the waterfront, as Békásmegyer was originally a swamp. The main character of the square couldn’t be different. It is a big, green, spotted frog. There are also slides, swings, a sandpit and a ping-pong table. It is a very calm area but we have to go a little further from downtown. The easiest way to approach it is by HÉV.
