My kids are in the creek right now. There hasn't been any rain for a while though, so i'm expecting to perform at least 1 leach removal procedure shortly....

Sure although we sometimes pronounced them 'criks', there was also a wooded river that could be deep or have fast currents that we weren't supposed to play near/ with...so of course we did.

Yes. I lived in Toms River, N.J. The river flowed through a basin in the center of town, and above the basin the river became a series of creeks. My friend and I found an abandoned row boat in the river, and used it to row up the creek on endless summer days. I have very pleasant memories.

I used to for a while until my dad told me it was the outflow from the septic tank.

We only had a stream, we could not afford a creek.

I had an Uncle with a creek running threw his property. Cousins, brother and sisters used to play in the creek. This was a not a fully used activity surpassed by fishing, hunting, rare ice skating, or exploring.

Yes it was my playground building dams, sailing boats, catching Yabbies and even making rafts with friends. As teenagers we even skinny dipped in one creek pool. Every kid should have a creek to play in.

No. We had a river to play in. Also pot holes back in the timber to swim in. Would have needed walk 6 miles to a creek to play in.

We played in a creek, we played in a swamp, we played in the woods, we played around a pond (and on it when it froze over), we played around the train tracks (when the railroad detectives weren't chasing us away), if the sun was out and we weren't in school, we were outdoors, playing.
