One of you sent in a photo from a park you recently visited that sure sounds
fun safe! In case the picture is too small to read, here are some of the rules:
For your enjoyment, please obey the following rules or you may cause injury to yourself or others.
*ADULT SUPERVISION IS REQUIRED AT ALL TIMES.
*No bicycles, roller skates and skateboards in play area.
*Inspect play area before starting to lay and remove litter.
*Pushing and running may cause injury.
*Throwing sand or other objects may cause injury.
*Metal pieces may be hot if exposed to the sun.
*Hold on with both hands.
*No standing on swings.
*Stop swinging before getting off.
*Never swing or twist an empty swing.
*Stand clear of moving swing to avoid injury.
*One person per swing.
*Slide feet first only.
*No running or walking up slide.
*Exit promptly to avoid collisions.
That last one happens to be my favorite. This is truly a sign on the times: Every eventuality must be listed, along with every possible danger, until people think you have to explain how and why to get off a slide, and even spinning an empty swing becomes a horror to be avoided.
