It is a sad little handkerchief of a playground and only suitable for toddlers rather than 6-, 7- or 8-year olds. I think there might be room for a little cradle swing or a slide that a grown-up couldn't contemplate however drunk. Of the dull stuff on offer here though, there are 3 whirly things. The pirouette will attract adults and territorial arguments. I always imagine terrible finger injuries of those rotating plates but I guess they're rare or there'd be no insurance available for them. But the turntable's more fun for either one or two kids. The wobble dish, as far as I've seen, is most enjoyed by 8-year olds and over including adults though I have to admit I myself never liked it. That leaves then the turntable, the balancing blocks, the see-saw and the rocking-plank. Grown-ups may well enjoy them come Saturday nights but I don't think much harm will come of it. They're a bit similar though and I think the see-saw's preferable. So for maximum variety and enjoyability, I'd go for: 1.The turntable 2. The balancing blocks 3.The see-saw Meanwhile, could the ping pong tables be spaced further apart please?

One last thing before I go, the issue of the closeness of the table-tennis tables. This has been raised several times by the DSRA and the simple answer is that nothing will be done because of the expense involved.
