I recall always going outdoors when I was a kid, around the year 2000. The park would be filled with all the kids in the neighborhood, no adults present to ''force'' their kids outside. My generation got older and many of us including myself stopped going to the park, just went out to stores and spent most entertainment times indoors with games. At first I thought we just grew out of it but I noticed the park never gets visitors, I visit my moms neighborhood; the park is always empty. It used to be FULL until 5:30pm, right before DBZ [a cartoon show] started and after the show some of us would go back out, now it's just empty unless a parent takes a toddler. Have you had a similar observation?
