Playground Review – Te Kowhai Village Green

I thought I’d put together some reviews of local playgrounds in the Waikato,  because if you’re anything like me as a parent, some days you just need to get out of the house. We have a cafe 2 minutes walk from our house which has an awesome playground, but sometimes, I just like to go somewhere we can take a little picnic, and not need to spend any money.

Now to the review of Te Kowhai Village Green.

I laughed, and my response was “well she is my daughter, and I’m a perfectionist so I’m not surprised.” I mean – she’s done a great job, even got all the smaller cars at one end.

She’s been doing it for ages. Flowers, straws, toys. Continue reading “My kid lines things up”
