I remember the youthful days back when families visited parks quite often. Just to enjoy watching their kids play, and doing a little of their own. My Dad and Granddad would sometimes take their horseshoes to the 'pits' that were built in some of those parks as it was a popular hobby of that era. So was having those Family Picnics in the covered bowery's or on a blanket. Croquet sets were also part of many picnicking adventures to the park for families, and that often included extended-families for larger gatherings.

Folks, young and old, also took advantage of the grassy parks to go play ball, or just head for the playgrounds. The real ones we use to have with more metal structures and tall swing sets that drew older kids, teenagers and adults to also have some fun. So many public places today have been 'modernized' with those ugly-looking, multi-colored plastic playground structures that are only of interest to toddlers and preschoolers.

It's all lead to the decline in what was traditional use of outdoor recreations areas, and you're correct. The absence of so many younger folks these days, and the past 10-20 years, has been due to the electronic games and other distractions that keep them lounging at home.

Maybe the only bright spot is they aren't out there using the parks and littering them up as much as they used to.confused smiley

Gregg and his pooches won't be along as Gregg is busy working, at least some of the days.
