Field trip Fridays: Micke Grove Park and Zoo

Micke Grove Park and Zoo is a small place. You can walk the zoo portion in about five minutes.

The part is very pretty though. There is a small Japanese garden too.

There was also an amusement park area, but it's never open whenever I go here.

It takes about an hour to bike here, from my house. So two hours round trip biking. Not a bad route for exercise. Exploring the park itself takes another half hour or so on bike. Depending on how lost you get.

And I get lost easily. Well, I probably won't take students here on bike anyway. But it's a nice little place. Perfect for a scavenger hunt, or some sort of science fair gathering. There are big open spaces to launch tissue paper balloons and cardboard tube rockets.
