Park Meetups...

    Recommended Posts

    Anyone fancy a park meetup? We had a few last year in the Glandore area...

     

    I know a good park for a meet up where the children can play safely and you still get good adult conversation! Anyone know Marshmallow Park on Glen Osmond Road nr the junction with Hutt road. It's city location so fairly good for most to get to, and the parking isn't too much of a problem if you get there at 10am when the parking restrictions change. So does anyone want to make a date?

     

    Could do a meet at 10am thing, bring a plate of morning tea / lunch to share. I think it would work on a weekday best, because I imagine that its harder to park on weekends.

     

    Wot say?

    I'm up for this!

    I can jump on the tram from Glenelg.

     

    I don't have any children to contribute, but I can bring food! LOL

    Hello

     

    I would bring my three along if we can make the date you come up with. At the moment the diary empty since we are new arrivals and dont have a social life yet! My boys love a good park and a picnic always goes down well.

    Well lets not say Friday, how about we avoid this weekend so that more can make it, and do it early next week sometime? If you are using public transport is the location I have suggested ok?

     

    It's here: http://www.playgroundfinder.com/playground.php?playgroundid=95

     

    Forgot to say, its also lovely and shady. Can give the children enough freedom but being fully fenced makes it easier to chat.

    Hi Sally

     

    Have you settled on a day? I am going to try really hard to make this as I normally like to have staked out a destination before I drive somewhere but am going to take the plunge and head on over. Park looks great from the link you attached. Just need to confirm date and time.

     

    Unless your sig is out of date your boys are same ages as mine!

    Driving would be better, will take about an hour to walk from the train station :eek: then a bus

     

    Could do the train then hop on the tram for a few stops, sorry but i have no idea on the costs though.

     

    Come on driving isn't that bad here compared to back home surely :huh:

    :sad: sorry 'bout that but would hate to try and walk it and get a steaming hot day.

     

    Now i feel bad, how about calling the bus people, there may be a bus route that'll take you into the city via Greenhill Road :idea:

    :D great. Too tired now, but its a date, lets confirm details but for avoidance of doubt - 10am Monday. Marshmallow Park. Alongside the park is a parking lane that is restricted until 10am, so get there at around 10 for a good park. How about we say bring something to share for morning tea, and then something for your own lunch if you want to stay for / past lunch. Last time we did an arrangement like that with a group of friends I'd made sandwiches and my children hardly ate anything, but I'll do the same again!!
