Schenectady Central Park Playground Gutted
Everything but the swing set has been removed from one of the playgrounds at Schenectady's Central Park, including the 3-decade's old triangle slide.
An insurance audit was done by the city and it was determined that much of the playground equipment was unsafe.
While there haven't been any injuries on the park playgrounds in quite some time, several of the pieces were outdated and potential hazards.
Officials are hoping that one day, new playground equipment will be brought in.
