Ta'Qali Playground

Ta'Qali is a large area in the middle of Malta, used as an air field around WWII. It is filled with a twice weekly Farmer's Market (know as Pitkalija, on Tuesday & Saturday), a Sunday junk market, a craft village, several parks, the US Embassy (woot woot!!), a dog park, winery and the National Stadium. You could walk for hours and still be finding things in Ta'Qali.

We've visited a couple times over the last month, as a family on the weekend and also with friends during the Easter break from school. It's nice to have wide open spaces to run and some great jungle gym areas for the kids to play.

In the summer, they also have water pads to play around/on. The embassy is one of the supporters of the park. And the OFD Summer camp that Ceti attended last summer was held here several days. It's a great place to spend the day... and the food trucks parks nearby with snacks and ice cream. There is also a nice cafe inside the park.
