We visited here quite a while ago, but I’m sorry to say I didn’t write it up because I wanted to go back for a different experience. We haven’t been able to, what with holidays and returning to school, and so on, and therefore I’ll just tell you about it!
The park is in a housing estate, and there’s a large patch of grass nearby for free play. In the playground fenced area, there are two climbing frames – one for bigger kids and another for the littles. James ran straight over to the see-saw, where we had our first encounter with the other boys in the park – they kicked a football at us. Excusing it as a mistake, I said nothing, and James dashed off to climb on this climbing frame. Where it happened again. This time the ball went next to James’ feet.
This playground is under a flight path and the aeroplanes go overhead so close!
I took Noah out of the sling when I felt no longer under attack, and James asked for his brother to join him on the bouncy horse.
While we were enjoying a swing, the other boys left, and rather oddly, didn’t take their balls with them.
This playground was lovely – different areas for various ages of children, and plenty of space for imaginative free play. I think we would have had a better time without the flying footballs!
