What is it about playgrounds that are so intriguing? A sense of nostalgia? A lost sense of innocence? A yearning for the simpler pleasures of life? Whatever the draw is for you, PlayGroundology is a blog you will want to check out. PlayGroundology is a blog dedicated to sharing “all things bright, beautiful and occasionally tarnished about the world of playgrounds. What I found most intriguing were  the awesome design of some of these structures and  the completely dangerous, now-banned structures. While many of the latter will make you wonder how these things were ever legal, one must also wonder if our overly-litigious, overly-protective society hasn’t killed the element of fun. Make sure to click links to the Flickr galleries dedicated to cataloging specific aspects of playgrounds.
