A Hidden Gem

Prior Avenue Playground

Here’s another one we visited last week.  This is such a cute park.  It also has an large grass area the size of a tennis court to kick balls and run around on.  Beware of bare feet though as there are lots of bindis (prickles).  In one spot you can see the remains of the old tennis court which seems to have formed hopscotch stones.  It is not fenced but is in a very quiet cul-de-sac with plenty of parking.  There are no toilets but plenty of local bushes. There is a castle with a drawbridge complete with local dragon and a set of swings.  My two didn’t want to leave they were so busy playing Knights and Princesses. Truly a local secret.
