Something is definitely amiss with this swing set, near Green Village Lane in Dartmouth—they’ve got the set, but where’s the swing?

Something is definitely amiss with this swing set, near Green Village Lane in Dartmouth—they’ve got the set, but where’s the swing?


Remarks: Look on the bright side, kids: You’ve lost a swing set, but you’ve gained a chin-up bar! Darren Deion, a PW employee, tells us that quite a few municipal swing sets are currently out of commission---and that there’s a perfectly good explanation. “A lot of these sites are going to be lacking their swings for a while,” says Deion. “They’re being fitted with ‘S-hooks,’ which are safer. They meet CSA standards.” Deion says disappointed under-duckers should expect the swings to return in “about a week or so.”


Who's Responsible?: Joe Ryan, Public Works supervisor for the area, 869-4346.
