DENMARK — Children skip across the roof of a mosque and play hide and seek in a Hindu temple: this unusual playground is designed to build tolerance.

Volunteers from various faiths in Fredericia helped to create the seaside playground, which opened in August in a town proud of its 18th-century role as a refuge for Europe’s persecuted. “It is fun to see what a mosque looks like and a Hindu temple and to play with children from other religions,” says nine-year-old Caroline as she scrambles among the model buildings.
