ryerson public school playground

    no swings.

    according to Lu_, none of the school playgrounds have swings anymore because of insurance issues.

    the city parks still have them though.

      Those are some cool 1970s childhood colors. Although they are, I gather, contemporary.

      The place doesn't look particularly fun to play in, although the picture is way fun.

      rather new looking, even.

      no swings or merry-go-round = boring

      fewer injuries though, i've little doubt.

      God. It's sickeningly safe.

      I haven't been able to find any parks with merry-go-rounds still. It's a shame. I loved spinning until I felt like passing out.

      Great eye striatic! Congratulations on a fantastic shot. Looks like a Joan Miró painting!

      Funny that different playground equipment is regarded as dangerous in different places. Here it's the merrygorounds and seesaws that have been removed or had their pivots damped to the point where nobody would want to use them.
      Perhaps the children have different playing habits.

      I remember being rather peeved when my school removed the merry-go-round due to liability issues when I was in the third grade. They kept the seesaws until much later, though...

      wonderful composition; great softness in cutout . . .

      in reaction to criticism of his playground designs as being dangerous, Isamu Noguchi created this model for Play Mountain, intended to be located on a vacant block in Manhattan:

      Gorgeous pic, those colors really pop out. Playground looks kinda lame but the photo is not!

      I've used it in my post about grade school rumors.
