  1. This is what it’s all about if you ask me. Experiencing life and getting in touch with nature. A homeopath said to me that kids need to grow up being a part of nature because as they get older, and life gets harder, depression and anxiety can take hold if they cannot connect with nature and bring themselves back to the basics. So true, awesome to see that you guys are doing just that, exploring, stimulating senses and imaginations and just being a part of life together.

    • Here here Loretta, I agree completely. It is a great park which feels unscripted enough for a pair of city slicker kids to feel like they are out in the wild. Not quite a free for all in the bush, but pretty close. They had an absolute ball.

  2. Looks like so much fun. Is this local to where you live? I’ve seen pictures of kids doing this at a part of Kings Park in Perth.

  3. Great adventure time for the boys…unstructured play however they want to build it…and then they come back with rosy checks and sparkles in their eyes which says it all…and then they are starving.
    Our grandchildren have bush kind of abutting onto their back yard. It has been the scene of so many adventures and then when it was all slashed back they were heart broken. It has since re grown but at the time there were sad young boys because all their cubbies and booths were gone. Their world in their eyes was destroyed.

    • Exactly the same thing happened when we were growing up. I remember being devastated when the bush was cleared for housing. I guess as city kids we were lucky to have it for as long as we did.

      The boys were exhausted and famished at the end of the day, and have been planning for a return trip ever since.
