Now the new playground at St Austel (for children) is amazing and not conventional. Noe a poll there as to what is the favourite could be most interesting.grandOldrec Wed 12 Nov 2008 22:25:11 GMT+1 grannieannie50 http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/theoneshow/onepassions/2008/11/pensioners-playground.html?page=60#comment3 There is a fab playground in Chiswell Green St Albans Herts that my friends and their children call the 10/10 park because it meets the needs of all children from toddlers to 12 year olds. We often say that it deserves an award. There is an imaginative range of equipment as well as ample room to explore and make your own games or play football. There is a small wood, tennis courts and a community hall on the same site. We are very lucky to have this facility and it is very well used.

The idea of a vote on favourite equipment was pointless, what exercise benfit would adults or children get from using a swing. This piece gave the impression that children want a playground to play in full of equipment. But children would prefer to play with loose parts or junk, a playgound should not be flat. when we were kids sliding down a bank of hill on a tin tray or rolling down it was great fun, so why do we feel our children need to be 'entertained' on equipment that limits the use of their imagination. The winner of the vote was a swing, but what can you do on a swing but swing, (any other ideas & kids would get told off for using inappropriately by adults). Kids have huge imaginations why do we restrict these?
