Playground Review - Admiralty Park Playground
All work but no play makes you a dull person, but I am not working anyway. 1 of the reasons why I decided to stop working is to spend more time with the kids. As a guy, I am really bad in playing with them at home, I get bored easily but I love brining them out to the playgrounds. Expose them to the sun, fresh air and more physical activities instead of watching tv and playing Ipad all day long. Instead of talking about investment, money and finance everyday, let's talk about playtime! To be more specific, playtime for the kids. I am sure alot of readers have kids whose age are around mine.
I recently brought them to a mega outdoor playground at Admiralty. It has to be the biggest outdoor playground I have ever seen. It's a pity as 1 of the major slides is still under maintenance. We have been going there for the past 3 weeks, the kids dont get bored with it. The highlight of the playground is this 25m long, 9m high twin slides. It apparently had some negative news to it. A woman was apparently badly injured and was flung out of the slide. There is a sign that states the slide is for 5-12 years old, though Im not sure if the sign was put up after the incident. It's interesting in the sense that most adults that I spoke to couldnt slide down properly in the slide, maybe the woman had some special technique or something? I dont know! But A3 who is 4.5 years old had a blast.
Oh, there was once a group of monkeys came and took over the playground with kids screaming and running away. That was really funny. The monkeys just swop in totally gangsters like.
As our kids are early birds, we arrive at the playground before 10, it can get a little crowded by 11 and the crowd taper away around noon time as it gets really hot by then. If your kids love playground and the place is accessible to you, bring them there! You can easily spend at least 2 hrs there provided you have the stamina to catch up with the tiny ones. Personally I feel that the playground is more suitable for kids at least 3 years and above, it may be alittle too advance for kids younger than that and things can get a little rowdy with the older kids. There wasn't any queue for the long slide as well, perhaps it has lost its novelty since 2017.
If you have any suggestion for other good outdoor play areas for kids, do share as well!
