Tumbling Bay Playground

Lauren, Matthew, Ruth and I went here last weekend with Ruth’s brother and his son. It was so cool.

There is a big, rocky slope with pumps. Children can dam the rocks to make conduits for the water.

And there’s a colossal tree house made of interconnected rope and wood bridges, netting and tree towers. There is an element of danger, but the risk is minimised by the soft ground and webbed rope. Lots of brave children clambered around, and a brave Mary and Lauren, too.
