  1. Oh wow, this looks fantastic! I am always on the lookout for new places to take the children, and I find myself drawn more to places with natural elements (creeks, hiking trails, beaches) than to traditional playgrounds with fascinating, but unemotional play structures. I wish we had a place like this near us!

  2. When I was about 5 or 6 years old, we went there one day, and there was an escaped ferret loose in there. I thought it was hilarious, and a little bit scary. Now I think a little bit eww.
