DENMARK

Children can romp in a supervised playground modeled after the one in Copenhagen's famous Tivoli Gardens, while their parents explore the other attractions. Carrying out the privately sponsored pavilion's theme, "Meet the Danes," the building is filled with exhibits and shops; there are two restaurants in the area plus a children's café.

The Denmark pavilion was easy to spot with its clean lines and bright colors. There were a number of sidewalk snack stands outside to tempt those too busy to head inside. (CD #49 Set 217 #27)


 

Tivoli in Miniature. In a 160-foot-long area, children can sail paper boats made for them by kindergarten nurses in attendance, whisk down a dipsy-doodle slide, explore a maze, play in a giant sandbox and climb about a Forbidden House where they can peek through a huge keyhole, stamp on the floors, or take a turn at a ship's helm. The playground was designed by experts who designed the original in Copenhagen.

I know that if my parents took me to a world's fair and then parked me in a playground while they went off to explore I would have been very disappointed in them. (CD #TBD Set 359 #9)


 

Restaurants. Pastries, made on the premises by bakers brought over from Denmark, and other Danish foods are served in to dining areas. The Kattegate Inn, a sidewalk café and snack bar, specializes in Danish coffee and Smørrebrød (assorted open-face sandwiches). The Denmark Restaurant offers more formal dining, adding specialties of the various provinces and fish flown in from the Baltic and North Sea fishing beds
