They wouldn't let you do it these days Wes. In our nanny-saturated society called the West, they would find ways to prevent anybody from doing anything like that today, "for our own good."  In our playgrounds here, most of which are now shut, they have replaced the concrete with rubber matting so poor little Johnny doesn't scrape his knee.

Great pictures, how hair-raising would it be.

Yea for sure (to much .Gov), Sad but True.  When I was 15, 4 friends & I snuck into the shut down POP we walked out to the end climbed a rickety ass wooden ladder all the way uP the mountain out at the end of Mystery Island with wrist rockets & we were shooting rocks at sea gulls dive bombing us on that flat top of it.

Where the person & the kid are walking is how far we had to walk out to get past big surf so we could jump in.

Believe it or not we live 500m from a Marine reserve in Sydney called Cabbage Bay.

It is famous for the White Sea Horse, and you can snorkel on a clear day and if you know where to look you can see them. Amazing creatures.
