In a sentence - “It's lovely to have children playing in the garden again.“, which has been quoted from Practical English Usage, the author explains this ‘have’ means ‘experience’.
When I paraphrase above sentence using ‘experience’ instead of ‘have’, which one of following two suggestions is better?;
1. It's lovely to experience children who are playing in the garden again.
2. It's lovely to experience the fact that children are playing in the garden again.
If none is correct, please don’t hesitate to propose with the suitable one.
Would hope to hear,
