Playground Safety

All of the old playground equipment with metal slides and other hard surfaces seems to have been replaced now by these colourful creations featuring all kinds of different uses. It sure is a change from when I was a kid. And that green surface below the play structures is almost as soft and cushion-like  as a mattress when you walk on it.

I seem to recall as a kid things were considerably more hazardous in playgrounds.

The same thing is happening here. My sister and I joke, how did we survive playing in such dangerous areas.

You are right Pat... big change from our childhood. Are we raising a generation of wimps?

Don't make playgrounds to safe. Then there are no more lessons to learn.
