Klimpark Uden: fun children’s activity in Uden!
Klimpark Uden had been on our list to visit for a long time and last Easter weekend we finally visited the climbing park. You can do various activities with the family at this climbing park. We have been to the place Uden before and wrote about this town in Brabant the blog Uden with kids. Following our visit to the climbing park in Uden, we write this comprehensive blog with all the information you need to visit the climbing park.

So on Monday morning on Easter Monday, we drive towards Uden and park the car for free in the parking lot of the Fletcher Hotel in Uden. From this parking lot, it is a one-minute walk to the climbing park. What strikes us right away is that the grounds are quite extensive and there is plenty to do for kids.
So we immediately come across a nice playground, where kids can play and there is also an air cushion, where small children can have fun. So you can perfectly visit this climbing park in Uden with kids of different ages, as there is an activity for every kid.
We will engage in three activities at this climbing park. We start in the bouldering garden with bouldering, then go climbing in the climbing park, and we finish the day at the climbing park’s Ninja Warrior course. You can make a reservation in advance on the climbing park’ s website to ensure you can climb that day.
The bouldering garden is next to the climbing park, as are the other activities, so you don’t have to walk far and everything is quite manageable. Bouldering is becoming increasingly popular among kids and this is reflected in the number of venues in the Netherlands where you can do this activity. This bouldering garden is suitable for kids ages seven and up.
The wall for the kids to climb is 3.80 meters high and the handles are all kinds of colors. These colors all represent a level of difficulty. Thus, we start with the easiest level in terms of climbing and go higher and higher in terms of difficulty. In total, you can climb thirty different routes in this garden.
There are small pebbles in the boulder garden, making you land softly when you jump down. Of course, it is also possible to just climb back through the handles and not jump. In all, we entertained ourselves here for an hour and our muscles warmed up nicely for climbing in the climbing park which we will do next.
The climbing park has a total of five different routes you can climb. A distinction is made between kids taller than 1.25 meters and kids taller than 1.40 meters. Our daughter is about 1.30 meters tall and gets to do the blue and green routes and the double zipline over the water.
After we have had instructions, we will begin the green route and it is 1 to 2 meters high. What we noticed right away is that the securing system is very easy and when climbing it is very smooth. We have climbed at many climbing parks, but this is really by far the finest system. Where normally we still have to help our daughter sometimes, now she can really do everything herself. At the green route you have 2 ziplines and 2 cable cars over the water.
After the green route, we do the blue route and it is at 3 meters and 5 meters altitude. A very fun trail with plenty of challenge for our daughter. In total, you have 12 climbing elements and a 30-meter zipline here. Then we do the double zipline across the water and this one is really super fun! You run off the platform and you shoot across the water. This zipline we do several times.
If your kids are taller than 1.40 meters, it is also possible to do the red and black route. Here you climb seven meters high. In total, the climbing activity takes two hours including a short instruction.
As a final activity, we do the Ninja Warrior course. This course requires kids to be at least 10 years old, and our daughter is actually a little too young for the course. On the website of climbing park Uden you will find videos of all kinds of exercises that you can imitate. In total, we spend three quarters of an hour here (especially our daughter) doing the different exercises you can do on this course.
Other children’s activities climbing park Uden
In addition to the three activities we did at Klimpark Uden, there are a number of other activities you can do here. For example, as we mentioned earlier in the blog, there is a large playground where the kids can have fun and a bouncy castle for the youngest kids. It is also possible to play mini-golf on the property. Of course, this can be a godsend for families, where you have a kid who is already allowed to climb and a kid who is not yet allowed to climb.
There is also disc golf. Here you have nine holes and the object is to get a Frisbee into a hole. You can also rent all kinds of bicycles at the climbing park and explore the area that way. There are all kinds of mountain bike trails in the area that you can ride with kids.
We had a great time for a whole morning at Uden climbing park. We did three activities here with our daughter and it was a lot of fun. Our daughter loves climbing and scrambling and was able to expend her energy tremendously in this. The park is uncluttered, which also allows parents to have a drink on the terrace in the summer while the kids climb, for example. For more information on all the activities at the climbing park, take a look at the Klimpark Uden website.
