What you don't see is that both of the playgrounds are unsafe and don't even meet minimum Consumer Product Safety Commission public playground guidelines. We've been here for 3+ years and didn't realize how bad it was until Klaw was old enough to run & play.
The Toddler Playground
|Yeah, definitely not enough loose-fill, huh?|
|hard to tell, but there's about 2" of space beneath the post|
|Broken picnic table|
The Kid Playground
|So much for a soft landing, eh?|
|It's missing railings|
|This trash can is ALWAYS full|
|I thought this was concrete, it's so hard|
Okay, I do laugh at the graffiti:
|"amw is an ugly ass hoe"|
|"POOP IS GOOD"|
I'm writing a letter to the HOA president because this is ridiculous. Of course, the contact form for the property management group is broken and the HOA website has been suspended.
What the heck do our HOA fees go to? I totally get that this is a first world problem but I'm paying fees that should cover care & maintenance of children's play areas. It would be better to just have open, grassy fields for the kids than broken, damaged playground equipment.
Have you ever had to work to get a public playground maintained properly? Ever dealt with an HOA? Do you have any tips you can share? Please???
