The City opened the scratchy surfaced, knee scraping, palm grinding, bloody face plant playground at Civic Plaza. As I suspected, the gray surface, though cushy, is rough like tarpaper roofing, and the orange and purple bubbles are like 20 grit sandpaper. Kids running and falling on those surfaces are going to get all scraped up.

It looks cool. 🙂
More for the designers than kids I would say. Thanks, Robin.
That’s one way to “take the edge off” your kids.
Hahahaha! Thanks Bruce.
Hi, Tim. Thanks for the f/u. I had hoped earlier that your initial thoughts would not be borne out in the finished play ground.So much for hopes, but I do appreciate the follow up…
If durability is what they were after, it may work. Nobody will use it if it hurts that much.
We’ll see. Thanks, Couriers.
What’s the SENSE in that? I’d love to have a sit-down with whoever designed that trap.
Thanks, Amy Rose.
You are welcome!
Yeah, cool looking, but not practical. I wonder how long it will take before there is a lawsuit?
That is a good question. Thanks, Tiffany.
Let’s see how long this lasts before a lawsuit!
It’s an interesting question. Thanks, Teri.
I love how you framed the place.
It’s a unique play area, for sure.
It is. Thanks, Lavinia.
Well, that’s just idiotic. The new urban playgrounds here have some kind of rubber base.
Hi Resa. These are cushy when you walk on them, but ther surfaces are rough.
