Gulliver Park

Gulliver Park is a park for children's play is inspired by the novel by Jonathan Swift, Gulliver's Travel, published in 1726. Although it is often considered a children's play really is a ferocious satire of society and the human condition, camouflaged as a travel book picturesque country.

Gulliver's Travel Picture

In this novel, Captain Gulliver is taken on his first trip to the shore by the waves after a shipwreck, and wakes up being prisoner of a race of people of a size twelve times smaller than a human being, less than 15 cm height. So in this park our children will be the 'Lilliputian' who captured Captain Gulliver, and will play in his clothes (which are slides, stairs and walkways)

You can read more about Gulliver's Travel in the Spanish Wikipedia Translated.
