The playground at Hanley Park is as attractive as you can get... but I always think the lay-out is a about more than just banging in a lot of brightly coloured circles.
There seems to be an artist's mind behind the design, especially from this angle. I know it's a bit off the mark, but it reminds me of the paintings of Sonia Delauney.
Interestingly, the park is now open 24 hours a day. In the old days, the 'parkie' would close the gates at dusk. I suppose there is no money to pay park-keepers now.
