Growing up in suburban Los Angeles in the 70’s meant lots of time at the local playground. Getting out to nature involved a car trip and because most suburbs were planned in the 1950’s city parks were always nearby.

We had simple needs back then. Most of the playground equipment consisted of basic metal structures with a certain level of danger which kept it exciting.

Seeing some of these images takes me back, and now that I have two kids of my own, makes me wish that some of these were still around for them to enjoy, bruises and all.
