notes from here and there
New Farm park is huge. 15 hectares or something. There are open fields and rows of rose gardens. Football fields, tennis courts and of course, a playground. I am amazed at some of the differences found in the playgrounds, and here is one. I'm sorry I didn't get a better photo of it because you can't really see how big this climbing aparatus is. To reach the top is really high. I don't know, 20 feet maybe. I like that this type of athleticism is encouraged. Here are some more pics of the playground. Check out this Morton Bay fig tree also known as a banyan tree, and this massive treehouse they built into it. This is only one small portion of it.
