The Amenity Park by Grace (6th Class)

In September our teacher, Mrs. Earley, brought us to visit the new Amenity Park. As it was a new facility in Moate we had never been there before. We were not anticipating the park to be so clean and so much fun.
We walked there at 12.30 and straight away we were playing and having the best of fun. The wildlife in the park is exceptional and the facilities would leave you exhilarated. My favourite activity was the zip-line as it left you feeling as if you were flying. We tried out the see-saws, the swings and the exercise machines. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and really appreciate this fantastic new facility in Moate for everyone’s use.
Unfortunately at 2.45 the teacher, arms akimbo, informed us that it was time to return to school. We had to concur with that albeit reluctantly.
We walked home at a slow pace as we were all now exhausted.
What a great day we had in our new park.
