park city

October 12, 2020

For the last few months, this parking lot has doubled as our children’s playground. With our back yard a mud-pit of discarded nails, wood planks and sheets of aluminium, the parking lot behind our house became their stomping ground. And boy, have they stomped. If not shooting hoops, or racing their bikes around the outer rims of the lot, they’re playing hide and seek, gaga ball or simply loitering like teenagers. In the summer months, all the neighbourhood kids gathered here for games, and now it’s just the three of them again, plus our next door neighbour (and his ace laser pistols) throwing a ball, counting cars, bickering and laughing. By 5 p.m. the parking lot is empty, so they have so much room to run around. It’s not charming or quaint, but it’s all the fun they need.
