It is located in Nervesa della Battaglia, in the province of Treviso, and is a very special playground: the Osteria ai Pioppi has its own amusement park without electricity, where everything has been handmade.
The air you breathe in this place has a hint of ancient times, when everything was simpler but also more genuine and fun. Let’s find out more about this unique playground.
Playground of the Osteria ai Pioppi: history
The creator and builder of this wonderful playground is Bruno Ferrin who began his project by building an iron swing, in 1969. But the story of his inn begins earlier when, together with his wife Marisa, they decide to open a fraschetta, a small place for the refreshment of traditional dishes.
Bruno fell in love with a poplar on the hill between Nervesa and Santa Croce and decided that there he would build his future. The first opening day was June 15, 1969: four tables, a demijohn of red wine and one of white wine, a few kilos of sausages. In a few hours more people stopped and the inn ended everything: for Marisa and Bruno it was an unexpected success!
This is how the story of the Osteria ai Pioppi and the playground began: Bruno is a man who has always kept alive his childish part and who still has many ideas to build new rides in his park.
As he says himself, he would like to be remembered for giving at least an hour of fun to young and old: and we are sure that it will be so!
