If you grew up in the 60s, 70s, or 80s, then you know firsthand how fast time flies. There are many activities that highlight this truth, and one of them is the way playgrounds have changed. Truth be told, some of the old and outdated playgrounds from those eras are just downright dangerous.
Here are 60 pictures of the “not so safe” playgrounds of the past
1. Hunk of metal
When it comes to the playgrounds of the past, a lot of the equipment was just hunks of metal that they shaped into something kids can play on. Just look at this with a hole in the middle, does anyone even know what this is?
2. Witch’s hat
If you’re old enough to remember witch’s hats on playgrounds, then you’ve definitely played on your fair share of janky ones. Look at that thing, it doesn’t even look like something children should go near, let alone play on.
