New Discoveries - Ashurst Park, Pukete

We discovered a gem of a playground in Pukete (Hamilton) today.  Just off Ashurst Ave in Pukete, Ashurst Park has a purpose built scooter track, flying fox and a small, but fun and challenging playground.

The boys wore themselves out racing around and around the scooter track and The Girl spent her time moving between the different swings and trying out the flying fox for the first time.

This is now the kids favourite pick of playgrounds in Hamilton.

We've decided to expand our horizons and start exploring around the parks of Hamilton a bit more to give the children more variety and challenge in their playground play.  I'm hoping this will help beat the winter blues, for both the kids and the hubby and I, and give us a reason to get outside on a cold winter day and burn some pent up energy.  Who doesn't like discovering new fun?
