Parents: Boerum Hill Playground Dangerous for Kids


A group of parents at P.S. 38 in Boerum Hill hopes to use funds from the City Council’s participatory budgeting program to improve safety at the school’s playground, reported DNAinfo. One six-year-old had blood streaming down his face after he hit his head on an exposed metal rivet on the underside of the jungle gym. The playground is closed after dark, but intruders cut open the metal fencing to get in, leaving jagged edges. Then the area is strewn with trash, broken glass, condoms, and dog droppings.
