This thread will be pretty unanimous I would think/hope!
Firstly, no way would I say that to other children. Your own children need to learn the art of sharing and waiting their turn.
Secondly, that's exactly what I would reiterate to the parents who did that! I would like to hope I did so politely in front of the children too....I hope

Hmm now I feel kind of bad as in the past I have asked older kids (10-11?) to please move so my DS can have a turn on the slide, he was waiting at the top for 5 minutes saying "slide pwease", while one child sat there not moving and his friends threw bark on the slide, is this bad??

No I would never do that! It wouldn't even cross my mind as an option. I would tell my children that they could either wait their turn or go and play on something else until the children had finished.
That's really rude I can't believe the audacity of some people.

What now? No way. I would say, just a few minutes, we'll be done here soon

No I wouldn't do that and if someone did that to my child (he's 15 months so I'd be next to him anyway) I'd politely tell them it's all their's when we're done and we're not done yet

If you had told the children to get off the slide completely so your children could have exclusive use, this would be a problem.

While we're at it, we've just started going to an indoor play centre occasionally. We go into the 0-3 section where kids are crawling and just learning to walk etc.. Anyways... there are always kids like at least 4 and 5 in there with parents not supervising, sitting having coffees and these kids are bigger, rougher and more confident than the littlies, I'm so tempted to say something but haven't yet - I did ask one child not pick up DS and to be gentle but I feel like it shouldn't be up to me to manage these kids.

My almost 4yr old would have told her 'you can have a turn after me' she has been taught to share and happily tells other kids to share and takes care to not hog things at parks. As for the 0-3 play areas, for safety you can report to staff. And older kids playing but not playing, I think it's fair to say 'excuse me, can my child please go down the slide' maybe at the same time teaching both your child and the older kids some playground etiquette

My dd & nephew are 10 and my ds is 6. They were playing on a big round swing big enough for all three of them to sit on. The woman had kids around the same age. My kids have been taught to share. They didn't know what to do. I'm quite annoyed at myself for not saying anything and sticking up for them.
