Wonderful times spent in Brackenwood (Rolly polly) Park Iremember the Beautiful Building in the picture. We lived on the estate,so mum would have to go there occassionaly and would take me as I was only a little tot then. The whole place was kept tidy from the entrance at the bottom of brackenwood road to top putting green.

So lucky to had my childhood on the Brackenwood. Lovely houses,gardens,play areas,Storeton woods as well. I live in NZ now but remember it all like it was yesterday.

How lovely to see the wall on the other side of the road. Now there is open space in front of the library.
