A Dying Relic of Playgrounds Past

A Dying Relic of Playgrounds Past

When I was a kid, the dome jungle gym was the heartbeat of most playgrounds.  You always had a slide (that got awfully hot under the sun), swings, a see-saw and the dome jungle gym.

As the old playgrounds are destroyed and replaced with modern, safer ones, the dome jungle gym is disappearing.  Too many injuries, I'd guess...

I still see one in West Deane Park, and I snapped this pic of one in New Toronto.  One day soon, there will be none left.
