It’s a miracle we all aren’t dead from horrible playground accidents. How many of us did summersaults over the bars on the BIG sliding board, or went down it standing up? How about jumping off the the witches hat (that pole thing with the circular seat suspended from it)or merry-go-round after you got it spinning as fast as you could? How many of you had playgrounds that had dirt packed hard as cement under the monkey bars that you would hang head down from? I can’t imagine a city now constructing a playground without the eqipment being made out of pressure treated lumber & a truckload of wood mulch under every piece of it.
