Having lived in this estate for more than 5 years it is really frustrating me – we have no nearby playground. There are no parks within walking distance. Also, we are not allowed to play with balls in the open green area as residents complain about the noise. There are so many restrictions over our estate.
So how can we encourage our children to stay healthy and fit if there is no playground around? They need to exercise physically and make new friends around the neighbourhood. I think there should have been better development planning as there are no facilities around.
So today, we drove to a nearby park just for the playground! I hope in future developers consider this in their planning. I would certainly advise friends and family looking to move house to bear this in mind for young kids.
