On an otherwise gray February afternoon, the colors of Hagert Playground lit up the entire block. A lovingly painted sign and a red yarn heart tied to the fence welcomes kids to the park. The playground equipment could use a good scrubbing, but the splashes of color outweigh the mean-spirited graffiti. On the afternoon we were there, a 13-year-old kid with a stopwatch was coaching several younger boys through an obstacle course that he had set up for them on, around, and through the playground. All in all, a great and welcome neighborhood playground.
