Fun with Frances

This month Frances and I went to Nick Ascenzo Park in Thomastown There are plenty of toddler swings, multiple slides, a bird's nest swing, climbing nets, a fireman's pole and spring rockers. The park has recently been upgraded and there are new picnic settings and seating, more trees for shade, a new shelter and BBQ area with drinking fountain. For the bigger children there is a new half-sized basketball court. Nick Ascenzo Park is located at 2 Boronia Street in Thomastown.
