I'm enjoying your images. Everything is so warm and green there while it is so cold here. It's a nice cold now, though, with Christmas literally in the air with lights flashing and the smell of Christmas trees.
I thought they were indigenous ceremonial poles, Jim, rather than simply for kids to climb on. I don't think the council could cope with the insurance required if anyone were to climb up them.
I'm sure I'd never reach the top of those climbing poles!!! not even half-way - love those paper-bark trees in the background.
Great tour of the park!! Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.
Who climbs the "climbing poles"? A nice peaceful park...great photo!
Julie, I thought they might have been some sort of indigenous totem poles too but when I looked for information about them, they were described as climbing poles.Theanne and Baron, I think you'd have to be very young and fit to climb them.
That's a pretty park -- I scrolled down too.
Great looking park, I would like to watch someone climb those poles. Great shot.
A great mean to measure time and life, these poles and trees seems to be. Please have a good Tuesday.daily athens photo
Beautiful park and another great capture! The climbing poles where definitely meant for a younger generation!! I would need a mechanical lift!! Have a great week, Jim!Sylvia
Never seen climbing poles before.
I thought the poles were some sort of totem poles. Good idea to for kid's climbing poles!
Even if one doesn't climb them, they look quite decorative, although the trees int he background must see them as some sort of threat? "We too were like you and then we were cut down and stripped and set up to scare you!"...Nice pic, Jim!
Nick, that's an interesting way of looking at it. lol
love the ashy colour of the trees in the background. Always love to see your photos!
Love Nick's theory about the climbing poles Jim, wonder how hard they are to climb, I love a good challenge haha!
Thanks for visiting my blog. Please leave me a message. Jim.
