The most peculiar and controversial design of the new Tire Swing Park complex is the large arching red steel beams. They look like a cross between the Golden Gate Bridge and whale bones. It is not clear what the functional purpose of them are. One thing is clear: they beg for kids to climb them.

In the category of “We saw this coming”, we photographed some kids in the act of climbing high up the scaffold. Much has been made about other safety aspects of the park, but this seems to be the biggest danger.
