In the last few years, you would accept the fact that the kids play area / playground equipment has undertaken a lot of innovations and new designs. In fact, days are gone when we used to see the 10-foot high-metal slides that usually got scorching hot on sunny summer days. Adding to that, games like merry-go-rounds would involve kids flying off into the dirt. These days, you can see the playground is featured with climbing walls, wobbly rope bridges, and more. Today's playgrounds offer a lot more variety and safety than ever.
