My heart hurts for the Renaissance Playground. It's huge, it's got the right sized monkey bars, but it's dirty. The playground is divided by a fence so naturally we parked our belongings on the benches in the middle. We arrived around lunchtime but quickly discovered we couldn't eat because of the copious amount of flies eager to share our lunch. The space for swings is a tease and also a testament to what the park seems to be-forgotten.
