The children's playground that grown-ups love
There is a fabulous new playground in Goolwa which, it seems, is more popular with adults than children. A friend, who shall remain nameless, was attempting to squeeze through the barrier protecting the playground, just before the opening date early last month. She had caught a glimpse of the new equipment, musical instruments and artwork from the road and wanted a closer look. She had almost gained access when a smiling security guard approached and told her she was about the twentieth adult to be refused entry within the past week. Apparently no children had been caught 'breaking in', only grown-ups!
There are benches and barbecues for picnics and there's a sandy beach at a shallow part of the river for swimming and paddling. But here's my favourite bit - and, I suspect why so many other grown ups were so impatient to get in - the musical instruments and artwork.
