We have visions of our childhood playground before all the equipment got replaced with plastic "safer" versions of themselves. We say playground, safe, what? One of us broke his or her nose once and arm three different times, all at this same playground. Did we grow up to be traumatized by playgrounds? No, we grew up to be strong and not wussy. When we drove by the playground in Kuna Park, we were so excited to see that they had not replaced the metal equipment. Springing metal animals? Check. Merry-go-round? Check. Monkey bars? Check. Oh, Kuna you have won us over by staying the same. Please don't change; we love you the way you are.
