  1. The zoo is a nice place but see the above

    I was in the garden yesterday with a 3-year-old child. There was a very large group of large children aged 13-14 and it was terrifying, for us with smaller children and for the older ones because we got angry at them - they were far too violent on the playground BUT there is no place for them either and their wilder games. So my request is that the zoo make a playground for 13+
