Well Ridden


This is Higashiharai Park (東原井公園). It's a teeny weeny park with two benches, a sandbox, and two animals on springs.

When I passed by there was no one there. But, from the looks of the handles, it seems like a lot of kids have ridden on both the panda and koala.


I remember I really liked this when I was little, too. My sister and I used to bounce around like crazy. I'm surprised we didn't pull the thing out of the ground!

I imagine many kids made the same kind of memories here, too.

I'm too old for these, but my son tried to destroy one of two when he was a kid... OK, I tried it once, when there was nobody in sight and was very funny!

You know a playground is popular when you see worn equipment but not broken. :)

Cute place! I like your perspective of the bench very much.

I like the tittle - Well Ridden.
At first, I thought it was supposed to be Well Hidden garden or something...

still, the second one is superb!

It's shocking how the lines seems to grab up the memories just from the mind. Outstanding composition!

It does look like a small park. But to a child it might loom larger than it does to us.

We used to have swings and merry go rounds in neighborhood parks. I tried a springy thing like in your photos a few years ago but I was too big and it leaned way over too far. Not so fun. I’m still looking for a more heavy-duty one ( ha ha).

Hi everyone! Thank you for commenting today :-D

Tall Gary, you're right, it probably does seem bigger for kids. I loved the merry-g-rounds :-D
