Hidden Playgrounds!!!

One of the big advantages that a sparsely populated nation such as USA provides is for people to have their own hidden niches even in public spaces. For instance on a recent visit to the Bob Woodruff Park, Plano I discovered that in one corner of the park, set away from the trails and pedestrian areas amid woods there is a quaint little play area complete with a swing, rope ladder, a wooden cabin, etc. I wondered who would come here and play but then on closer scrutiny it became obvious that the park borders a residential community and some smart resident had created a children's play area for his/ her kids in the park with natural surroundings and advantages. Here are some pictures of the play area...
