Playgrounds for adults

Winnie Hu, NYT, June 29, 2012, says New York is testing playgrounds for the taller set—grownups. These already exist in Florida, Washington State, and other places.

Basically, these are outdoor gyms.

These came from China and parts of Europe where bounding about outdoors is almost required.

Didn’t these used to be called par courses?

They have chin up bars, mats, sometimes chess boards. They are cheaper than kids’ playgrounds.

Probably a good idea. Why not? Unless the bullies or druggies move in.
