To Breakingthelaw...first.. if you noticed I commended the parks department for their work. I think you just contradicted yourself...If you feel the parks dept has put a lot of hard work and time in cleaning and improving the parks..then you shouldn't have to wear gloves and pick up trash yourself....

To Mike... I am aware that it is a pirates hat.....if it was Halloween..that is fine... I never knew Pirates to be a positive roll model...!! Maybe I'm just old school.... but I can't be the only one that will look at it and then look twice. Enjoy the Spring!

Nope.. Pretty sure you're the only one.

@SunEday: so, you're concerned that a kid might see the pirate hat and, what, turn to a life of piracy? What a ridiculous notion!

Personally, I look to the people I surround my child with to be role models for him (myself, my husband, our family, our friends, etc) rather than play equipment. The only thing I actual expect from play equipment is to be safe, mildly entertaining and, in this particular case, promote imagination. Children that are playing at this playground don't necessarily know about Somali pirates, they know about Captain Hook. In my opinion, this is being WAY over-thought. What is being installed at this playground is considerably better, safer and more entertaining than the swings that it is replacing.
