  • Viking Valley Playground – 400 N. Main St., Lindsborg, KS 67456
    A testament to the community spirit of Lindsborg, Viking Valley Playground was constructed by more than 1,500 volunteers, using mostly donated tools and supplies. The designers took input from local children on what they'd like the playground to include and incorporated many of their ideas. The result is a unique playground located in Swensson Park, featuring a rocket ship, climbing wall, castle, and treehouse, making it perfect for some family time in Lindsborg.

  • Höglund Dugout – 12th Ave. S., Lindsborg, KS 67456

Much of the Höglund Dugout still stands today and can be visited on 12th Avenue about 2 miles south of Coronado Heights. The original home measured just 6 by 12 feet and was covered with the top of the wagon that the family used to make the journey to Lindsborg.
