When I was a little girl, my favourite place in the whole world was Cenntenial Park in Sydney. Every time I visited my Dad, I would check his bread bin. If the bread was mouldy, then he would take me to Cenntential Park to feed the ducks. Then, I would get to play on the green and red Rocket Ship. Last night I saw a TV show restoring an old Rocket Ship slide and thought of my days playing in the park. I ‘googled’ to see if it’s still there, so I could take my kids some day. Sadly, the Rocket Ship is no longer there. Then I found out that it’s just been moved tear Waverley Oval on Bondi Road. A chance to make new memories with my kids!

Dies anyone else remember playing on the Rocket Ship before it was moved in the late 80’s?
