Family time at the playground

If we're ever stuck for something to do we fall back on an old favorite.  A playground.  Ethan always loves a run around in the fresh air, a chance to climb.  As Felix is getting older he is also starting to get into playgrounds.  Both boys love swings and climbing.  Playgrounds provide us with an easy way to spend some time together as a family.

We recently discovered a new playground in Tickenham, a village near us, that we hadn't visited before.  As the weather was nice (well, cold, but sunny and dry!) we decided this afternoon would be a great time to visit, so off we went!

We were pleasantly surprised with the playground.  It's hidden behind the village hall and there is plenty of parking.  There are quite a few walks in and around Tickenham so it's a great addition if you're children need a bit of extra fun before or after a walk!

In terms of play equipment, there is a large swing (I think the correct term is a "team swing"), a zip wire, a climbing frame with a slide and a timber framed adventure trail.  Something that appealed to me straight away was that the play equipment was mostly wooden.  It blended in with the natural environment.

Much of it was too "old" for Felix who is 18 months old but Ethan could have a good go on all of the equipment.  Both boys enjoyed the swing.  They were able to go on it together which was fun!

All in all we think it's a great addition to the area.  So lovely to know of another playground nearby that we can visit!  If you are one of my local readers then you might want to check it out - the playground is on Clevedon Road in Tickenham, behind the village hall.
