The Margaret Mahy Playground opened today, and it’s great!
There were lots of families having a wonderful time. Some fine rain became heavier later and will have dampened a few spirits, but there’s many days of fun to come.
It will be even better when the trees grow and provide some shade. I just wish there were a few places to sit with back supports. I miss the benches that used to be along the riverbank. Will they be replaced, I wonder?
There were several places where you could buy icecream, coffee, and food. I can picture us having a takeaway meal there on a warm sunny evening.
“This is a truly great playground
which kids will love to be around.”
