No Place to Play

Written by Mike Turner on April 24, 2014

Parents hold a candlelight vigil Thursday for a condemned play structure.

The 40-year-old play structure in Couch Park was closed Tuesday when engineers determined it was unsafe.

The structure is heavily used by students from the adjacent Metropolitan Learning Center where they’ve also lost access to the park. The city said it can no longer be repaired and that there’s currently no money to replace it.
