    Background: NOT EXACTLY A NEW IDEA - BUT STILL A VERY GOOD ONE... LONDON'S LATEST ADVENTURE PLAYGROUND WAS OPENED THIS WEEK ON A TWO ACRE SITE RIGHT IN THE CENTRE OF THE CITY, AT NOTTING HILL UNLIKE LONDON'S OTHER ADVENTURE PLAYGROUNDS THIS ONE IS A PERMANENT FIXTURE.

    THE WARDEN EXPLAINS EXACTLY THE PURPOSE OF AN ADVENTURE PLAYGROUND, AND HOW THE CHILDREN - ABOUT 200 EACH DAY - TREAT THE PROPERTY. AS FAR AS HE'S CONCERNED, HIS MAIN PROBLEM IS OBTAINING MATERIALS - OLD WOOD AND SUCH LIKE - FOR THEM TO BUILD WITH.

    FOR THE CHILDREN, THE PLAYGROUND'S AN ALTERNATIVE TO THE RELATIVE BOREDOM OF STAYING AT HOME, OR THE FAIRLY BIG CHANCE OF GETTING KNOCKED OVER BY A CAR IF THEY PLAY IN THE STREETS. AS ONE CHILD PUTS IT - "THERE'S NOTHING ELSE TO DO AT HOME - EXCEPT WATCH THE T.V. BOX!".
