Well, it is 'back to school' and luckily for our kids, they can run out for recess and jump around on much safer equipment.

But, for those of us born before 1975, remember these?  Slides made out of metal and 'real' monkey bars with no padding if you fell.

Found these former glories at Tiff Park on a walk with my daughter, Joelle, last weekend.  They are even marked off with 'Caution' tape.

They have devised some cool playground fun tough in Buffalo for a complete list here you go!
