What a brilliant transformation, ideal for children of all ages. Lovely photo too.

We had a look at this when we visited a few weeks ago. Had to laugh because there is every thing to use for toddlers to teens yet kids were still climbing in the shrubs at the side of it.

These children's playgrounds have to have wood chips and rubber matts all over the place to stop kids hurting themselves, yet kids were fine before all the H&S nonsense came a!ong. I remember in the 80s and 90s were slides and swings just had concrete around them, none of this kids wrapped up in cotton wool and patents going mental cos they've got a few scratches through fa!long; it's part of growing up, get over it. I bet there's a CCTV camera over looking this place, they might as well be because they're everywhere else you go. If you think our lovely country park is free from surveillance then think again, there is a set of cameras either side of the hall, they look like lampposts. Nobody cares about all that as long as I'm alright jack.

Peterp were you never a kid because youngsters would rather climb grubby trees any time rather than manufactured ones, at least i would have done in my childhood lol😊
