Neighbors complained about laughing children

A popular children’s attraction has been removed from a park in Malmö, because the neighbors complained the kids were having too much fun.

The neighbors said children were making too much noise while jumping on the “hoppkudde”, a giant plastic bag similar to a trampoline. So finally Mårthen Gunnarsson, the head of Malmö’s Folkets park, gave in and removed the attraction.

 “We’ll still have fun things for children to play with,” he tells Swedish Radio News. “But you have to remember that we have been here for 125 years, so no has moved in without knowing we were here. Most people think it is nice that it’s fun, but others think it’s problematic, so we have to balance it.”
