When I was a kid the swings were my favorite part of the playground (besides the wobbly bridge) and I may be dating myself here but it seems to me that playgrounds aren't nearly as fun as they used to be. They are too safe! A little danger is what made them so fun- super high structures, really long swings that went very high, see-saws that someone could jump off of and send you plummeting to the ground, long slides with no guardrails- those were fun! Luckily, there are still a few off those good old fashioned dangerous metal structures around, they can usually be found in older neighborhoods and historic districts, like the 17th Street Park in the Inman Park neighborhood in Atlanta where I took these pictures. Let the fun begin!
