Where was your favourite place as a child?

Found 23rd Mar 2011
We had a place called Coco's, it was a huge building with soft play, tunnels, slides, rope ladders, swings and flying foxes. This was when I lived in Musselburgh. Ahhhhhh, memories!!!

Was that Koko's at Kinnaird Park Ham? I remember that well - though I didn't actually play there (I must be older than you lol).

I used to love going to Musselburgh Race Course with my dad when we were younger - and the dog racing at Powderhall. Hmmm I see a pattern emerging here

YOUR KIDDING?????

Believe it not but probably school, anywhere really so long as my so called parents weren't there.

Nope - all that side where the cinema, megabowl, frankie and bennys etc is as flat as a pancake. Its all been extended and joins on to the shops at the Fort (which was over the road). That part is still wasteland - not sure what its going to be. Sad times!
