Given that it might just be the most popular playground within a 10-mile radius – or more – it’s hardly surprising that our South Beach house of fun gets some major wear and tear.
The sheer numbers means that every swing, every slide, climbing frame, musical instrument, zip wire and beyond has been working day-in, day-out for the past two years to keep our kids happy.
And their parents sane.
Such intense love and daily use is the reason why local councillor Jodie Neary has decided to form a Sunday morning group of volunteers to spend an hour making sure that the playground gets a little TLC, with paths cleared, those musical instruments cleaned, and the likes of huts, swings, slides and beyond all getting a quick once-over.
Partly because, hey, it’s nice to be clean and tidy, but also to ensure a long and happy life for the playground, and all the fun that resides within.
The weekly meet-up will also catch any serious frays and fractures before they become a real problem.
Meeting every Sunday, at 10am, with hi-vis jackets and tools provided, if you feel you can spare an hour each week (or thereabouts), you can reach Jodie on firstname.lastname@example.org.
There is now also a Saturday 10am to 11am clean-up group at Kilcoole’s Little Tern Park Playground.
