A playground is supposed to be a happy, safe place where kids can play free from worry. It’s not very complicated! You and I could probably get together at your local Chili’s and think up a serviceable playground over a couple Zima’s. But do some playground designers get it wrong? You bet they do!

It turns out a sizable percentage of playground designers are perverts, sadists, or both. Let’s take a look at the fruits of their labors!

I would recommend getting a tetanus shot before you read this article.
