Playground and Street Art Outside my New Office

Playground and Street art

Just outside my new office, two whole minutes from my home, is a playground that I find quite cool. Most of it is made from wood and there are a lot of interesting animals. Now there is some new street art up on the building just next to is. The art is very colourful little monsters and the kids seem to really like them!

The park is named after a writer from Stavanger who used to live close by. His name was Andreas Jacobsen (1909-1995), but he went by the pen name Ajax. He wrote books in Stavanger dialect about the kids on the street. Some of his stories are very popular around christmastime.

  1. I love that the town has honored a writer from their town. The playground is wonderful. Colorful and creative. How lucky your job is so close to home as is the playground. Playgrounds keep you young at heart.
