De­light sprin­kled

Central Leader - - OPINION -

On De­cem­ber 24 I went to Pot­ters Park for a child’s party.

Imag­ine my de­light on see­ing the 12 sprin­kler wa­ter foun­tains – free for ev­ery­one.

What a fan­tas­tic com­mu­nity idea.

A few weeks later I took my niece.

There were fam­i­lies with blan­kets and pic­nic bas­kets en­joy­ing the sun and watch­ing their chil­dren cool off and play in the park.

A gi­gan­tic thank you to Auck­land Coun­cil.

Along with the gym equip­ment for adults in parks (eg, May Rd and Rocket Park) this is a bril­liant idea.

I was smil­ing so much from watch­ing the chil­dren en­joy them­selves.

Took me back to my child­hood.
