…in the world.
Well, our grandparents survived these and it is true that the new
parks are protecting us to bored tears, but this park in Alpine a few
minutes south of our camp definitely hearkens back to an earlier and
less litigious time.
No doubt real teeter-totters are a bruised bottom waiting to happen
(and this one tried to simulate a mammogram on me (don't ask) but they
are great fun with constant adult supervision. Same goes for the
gargantuan slide that sends Lucy flying for yards off the bottom to
the mud and enormous monkey bars enticing kids to climb to ridiculous
heights. No passive park parenting here, but of course the kids loved
it and (aside from said accidental mammo) no one was seriously hurt.
