Day 29 – Old Playgrounds

Most of the old playground equipment has been replaced at the parks. But, occasionally, you will encounter an isolated playground in an unexpected place where the equipment is the original stuff. The slides are the tall, narrow ones that I’m sure plenty of kids fell jumped off – or the tall, over-sized swings that adults can still swing on and feel like they were flying just like they did back when they were kids. I’m always happy to find these because it is a flash back to childhood that I think we sometimes need.

    Swinging feels so good.
    Sliding goes with swinging too.

    Parks are a lot of fun!


  2. …and burned your butt on the metal slide in the summer. 😉
    Great find!

  3. My father is a welder and was called to replace some fencing at an apartment complex when I was a child. He came home with a slide just like this one. And a jungle gym (circular with pole down the middle). It was the best ever. My parents still have these pieces in their backyard, for the grandkids to enjoy when they come over. I love it.


  4. There is something so melancholy, yet beautiful, about this picture.

    My mind went immediately to an old playground in a local park that I used to go to as a kid. Your picture is stirring.
