Skinners is federally funded as a backyard for children in the local public housing estates who do not have access to a backyard of their own. No junk food is permitted within Skinners. No smoking or alcohol either. Skinners attempts to promote a healthy lifestyle.
There’s a sand pit, a trampoline, a giant swing – I was amazed that this place was not packed to bursting point! It took a bit of an explanation from a friendly staff member to inform me that the playground is there for local disadvantaged children, and whilst they are open to the public, their priority remains on this group of children. Beautiful concept.
