Dennis, we value your opinion and strive to bring all aspects of the play and playground industry to light. We at PGP do not sell equipment - we only champion play.
Playgrounds and safety surfacing is a large investment. The fact that kids get hurt on equipment is tragic, however, we as a society can never reduce all risk from all things. We have many articles on the value of risky play. This article simply speaks of other uses for playground equipment. I do wonder why this article prompted this comment.
