New wave Valencia playground sprouting

20120213-091157.jpg

Kids these days don’t know how good they have it when it comes to playgrounds. Back when I was still allowed inside one of these things, we’d consider ourselves lucky with merely a slide, monkey bars, swings, and some broken bottle-infused sand that the one jerk kid would always throw in your face. Bonus points for one of those 3 story rocketships that were terrifying if you happened to be scared of heights.

These days playgrounds have playsets that mimic modern art and instead of sand opt for that nice cork composite padding to cushion the skulls of any children who lose their balance. I have no idea how that seat thing on the left is even supposed to work. Of course, if this place really wanted to score points with the locals, they’d install a mini-sutro tower!

    If its any consolation to you, kids using this stuff will say the same stupid shit you are about playgrounds in 20 years.

    Assuming you are over 23, which could be a mistake on my part.

    Yup, same exact equipment as almost every other newly remodeled playground in the city. FYI, “the seat thing on the left” is for sitting–doesn’t do shit otherwise.

    The drunks that inhabit that park will never fully appreciate the aesthetic.

    This is what they call sprouting up a playground?

    Does that thing on the right spin? The double decker spinny stuff kids get these days is downright terrifying.

    Lucky little bastards.
