Playgrounds: Are they public health?
This past summer, the city of Brookings, Oregon received notification that they would receive nearly $50,000 from the Oregon Department of Parks and Recreation to replace current worn and broken playground equipment at Brookings’ Easy Manor Park. The city already approved $33,200 for the project.
This fall, the city of Corvallis will ask voters to approve a $13.6 million bond measure, some of which will pay for major improvements at Chintimini Park, playground equipment in ten other parks.
Do you think these are moneys well spent?
Does playground policy affect the public’s health?
