If you have small urban garden, what children activities do you have/do in there?

I have a small patio garden and there is not much to play with for my 3 and 6 year old boys. The small sand / water table does not get much play. We had a small trampoline but it was really too small but occupied so much of the garden that we gave it away. What else could we have in the garden? I am thinking football gate or basketball hoop.
Any ideas? Thanks!

We currently have a mud kitchen, digging patch and the beginnings of a 'snack garden' (pots of tasty things like mint, strawberries, grow bag of tomatoes). I also have plans for a music wall and some kind of ball or water run on the fence.

We do pottering in our small garden- running around type activities are for the park.

we only have a little Wendy house, which is largely ignored. the DDs also enjoy planting seeds and watering the plants. we get a little £2 three ring pool out in the summer for water play.

we're within a 2 minute walk of 600 acre park, so go there for everything else.

An easel, so they can paint outside?

A small slide and ds helps garden: plants seeds and waters them. We have enough space to kick a ball back and forth but no equipment for that.
