Rocket Slides And Monkey Bars: Chasing The Vanishing Playgrounds Of Our Youth

For children, playgrounds are where magic happens. Thanks to safety regulations that evolved between 1973 and 1993, the playground equipment of happy summers past have nearly disappeared, replaced by newer equipment that's lower to the ground and made of plastic, painted metal, and sometimes rot-resistant woods.

But removing and replacing playground equipment takes money, so a certain amount of vintage playground equipment survived into the next millennium - but it's vanishing fast.
