Thunder By Natasha

Thunder booms through the sky,
I can hear the rain smashing against the windows.
Everything will get blown away by the wind,
I can see the lightning fighting in the sky.
Trees swaying wildly...

The Review - By Nadav

The new Playground in Stonefields

Have you heard of the new playground in stonefields? Well I really hope you have! It is a first-class playground and one of the best of them! If you want a marvelous playground to take your kids, then this is the playground you're looking for! It has a slide, a water contraption, a dam and much more! It's suitable to a different range of ages and has a variety of stuff to do! It's near the cafe, the school and more!

Today I will be reviewing the new playground and some of its rides e.g the water contraption and dam, the diggers, the swings, the spinning top and the slide! This will hopefully persuade you to go and support this wonderful playground! I really think that if you try it you'll enjoy it more than any playground you've ever been to!

In my opinion my two number one things to do are the water contraption/dam and the diggers. The reason being is that the diggers have levers that you can move around to dig and empty. I like the water contraption/dam because in the fountain you can block and charge up water and let go then, when the dam is almost flooded you can open it up and it flows to a water screw. I don't like the sand because it gets in my eyes, my shoes and it's just annoying. The flying fox is a bit loose and feels like you are about to fall off. The problem is that there is no toilet. I like the swings just because I like swings and I like how the swings have rubber, covering the chains. I like the slide because when you slide down it, you go really really fast!

I think this playground is suitable to all ages up to 9/10, people who like playgrounds and people who like sand! So I hope this persuaded you to go and check out this playground.

Playtime Playground By Bar

The Playtime Playground

Have you heard about the new playground in Stonefields? The Playtime Playground. It's close to a cafe and Stonefields School and is situated at the bottom of Mt Wellington. It is a new state of the art playground that is within half an hour of Aucklands CBD. You and  your family should come and check it out!

The new playground has some pretty cool features. The playground has a flying fox, a basket swing, a massive spinning top, and some others. The floor is made of sand and it's really soft. The playground has a mini - tower with a slide to slide off the tower. It has these mini - diggers which are pretty cool.

Some features that I like are the basket swing, and the huge spinning top. I think those are really fun. The basket slide is held up with chains, and the chain is surrounded with rubber so it wouldn't hurt if you hold it. The cool thing about the spinning top is that you can control the speed of it spinning so if you sit on the spinning top, and you want to spin fast, then you could push it hard and it will go fast, if you want it to go slow, then you could push it lightly.

Some features that I didn't like was the sand, and the speed of the flying fox. The reason I didn't like the idea of having sand instead of grass is because it gets in your shoes and you get full of sand. It is really hard not to get sand in your shoes! The reason I don't like the flying fox too much is because it doesn't go down a hill so it goes really slow.

I would recommend the Playtime Playground to children from 2 - 13 years because the playground hasn't got games that would really interest people that are older than 13. And the games are probably not for 1 year olds or younger.

Cutting Edge of Fun! By Mia

Have you seen the new modern playground in Stonefields? It’s the new park full of laughter, adventure and most of all - fun!
It’s unbelievably close to the Stonefields Market, School, Mt Wellington and many other venues. This playground is ideal for the whole family because it has many thrilling attractions in the park
for all ages and stages!

This park is a perfect excuse to escape the boringness of your house!
Your kids will be begging to stay the whole day so - Why not? There is a vast amount of lush grass great for having a picnic on!
There are many features in the playground such as a turntable, a uber cool water feature, swings, basket swing, slide, jungle gym, mini diggers, a flying fox and many other attractions to enjoy.

I think that the only down side to the park is that it has no toilets there are still many other toilets around. Also, if you are not a sand lover you may want to avoid this park but surprisingly all the rest is great! This park is made with safety in mind with sand covering most of the ground rathern than splintering bark but is still heaps of fun as well! The park has been made with quality and quantity so you will never get bored of it!

This playground is a definite must do for all kids - and adults from the age of three years right to the age of 70!because it is the cutting edge of fun! I definitely hope that you enjoy my review - and the park!
