Edinburgh Play Park in the Meadows.

Written by Melanie Evans on Wednesday, 09 November 2011. Posted in Mainland Scotland

Edinburgh Play Park in the Meadows.

When I was a child Edinburgh meadows had a park with all the usual stuff: a climbing-frame, swings etc.

When I returned there on our trip to Scotland with Harris and Gilby, I was delighted to find that it had been all done up and was lovingly prepared for open ended play and had multi age facilities.

For my little trekker there was a pirate ship in a giant sand pit, with telescopes and gang planks. There was a giant water screw, for want of a better description, that ferried water along from one child to another and then more sand for great pie making. There were bucket swings and big round swings and big kid swings, huge climbing frames and a sand pit with tubes and scoops for moving sand around.

When it started to rain, as of course it must, being Edinburgh, most children left, but not us as we were wearing our Spotty Otter kit and so stayed warm, dry and cosy on the inside.
