Playground



This photo shows the playground at Stamford Park, between Ashton and Stalybridge. Many of the traditional things such as slides and roundabouts have been replaced by more modern playing equipment like pirate ships and bouncy things on springs, plus plenty of climbing frames.

Sorry, no close-ups of happy children having fun as this is not advisable these days. However, this distant shot gives a good impression of the colourful modern playground that today's youngsters can enjoy in Stamford Park.

See Google Aerial View of this location, although it seems to have been taken before the latest play equipment was installed.

    I took this scene in 2000 with a view of the paddling pool.
