Wood Island's Playground

The picnic area at Wood Islands has an imaginative play area of old buildings made to look like sea shanties. I got a concussion from hitting the top of my head in one of these buildings in 1983. They also have the usual modern swings and playground equipment.

 

Addendum:

This view of the playground is so odd that I am going to dig up another.  Here it looks a bit dangerous.

No doubt the kids and adults still talk about Mary's Bump!
Mary MacADNski: The most noticeable bump was that I was pregnant for my second child and playing with my first child and my niece. I had to lie in the grass for quite a while.
Quite unusual, but I like these wooden structures Mary!
Mary MacADNski: I have many pictures of this playground with many varied views. Perhaps I will dig some up.

I bet the kids love 'em Mary
Mary MacADNski: They absolutely do. I am playing with another generation of kids here now but ham very careful about where I put my head.
Kinda like fun hidey-holes, Mary!
Mary MacADNski: It is a great place. I will show some other shots.

Oh how wonderful. I bet this is a lot of fun for the kids (and the not so young kids - sorry t ohear about your head smile ) I wonder why there is a bunch of flowers on the bench.
Mary MacADNski: Those flowers are just tall wild flowers growing where it is not mowed. This is a very fun playground and some kids are in awe of seeing the boats.
I like this Mary, like a sunken building with just a roof showing.

Hundred years from now, they will wonder what tribe lived here smile
Mary MacADNski: As I was showing this is all subject to the ferocious erosion.
Very pleasing construction, is it clad with wooden shingles.
Mary MacADNski: All traditional (such as my house) buildings are.
This looks like a great place to get a concussion Mary
Mary MacADNski: I still thin of the stars at the moment and the intense headache for quite a while. I was pregnant with my middle child so took nothing.
Oh what kids wouldn't enjoy having that lot to play in.
Mary MacADNski: Kids certainly do. I am playing with another generation of kids here now but am very careful about where I put my head.
I like it--giving kids entire buildings to play in or on.
Mary MacADNski: There are lots of picnic tables, swings and cooking shelters.
Nicely shingled!
Mary MacADNski: Yes, though they are looking quite worn.

I am glad you survived that bump... they look great to play in. I would have a heyday in them. I love the weathered wood.
I hope you have lots of fun with you grandchildren here.
Mary MacADNski: I am not here that much anymore with my grandchildren. They moved to New Brunswick, our other mainland, 14 months ago. Now they come by bridge. It was the only concussion I ever had, thankfully.
