“I come to Eccleshill every day if I can. I usually come on my bike. At the moment I love playing on the trampoline, I’m learning how to do different flips! But I like everything about this place: the big swing, the jumping tower and the den.We get to build things now and again. It was my cousin’s idea to make a den, it turned out to be quite popular. Lots of us used it as a hiding place when we played games and it was up for over two years. I’m proud of the den we built.
I love coming here. I’ve told people at school about this place and I advise them to come. It’s a lot more fun than people usually think: there’s lots of equipment to go on. I’d be very upset if this place got taken down. I’m not one of those kids that will sit on their phones: I prefer to be outdoors. It’s quite boring at home otherwise. This is my second home.”
