You can locate an awesome playground in just about any space. Put it next to an old prison, in a traffic triangle, next to a busy roadway: we can work with that. But this playground just can’t seem to overcome its siting deficiencies: it’s next to a cemetery AND on the top of windy treeless knoll. It has perfectly serviceable equipment, albeit a little trashy, but it’s hard to overcome these limitations. I suspect that, like some playgrounds, this one is destined to always play second fiddle to the popular basketball courts and expansive pavilion and picnic grounds.
