We have a little playground 2 blocks from home. Swings, soccer field, and a big metal structure with slide, little climbing wall and other cool things.
Since I go there on a regular basis with the kids, and that my camera follows me, I tried to do it handheld on a few occasions, but the stitch was always awful. So one time, I brought the tripod, and did it properly.
Classic 10mm setup : 16 images * 3 exposures + nadir * 3. Everything stitched perfectly (did one minor post stitch correction)
Next time I take something like this, I'll need to have the kids in it.
And the little planet that goes with it!
