Large rusty bolts exposed on decaying playground equipment at Joseph Howe elementary on Creighton

“I hope you can fix this one,” emails an outraged Haligonian, tipping us off about the large rusty bolts exposed on decaying playground equipment at Joseph Howe elementary on Creighton. “No kid deserves to play near this junk.”


Remarks: “My crew went down to Joseph Howe and found some issues,” says Arbuckle. Now comes the juggling act of repairing the equipment so it’s safe enough to last until the city can afford to replace it with a new piece—in a year or more. Meanwhile, Arbuckle’s people “noted the deficiencies and are going to action the repairs.”



Who's Responsible?: Bill Arbuckle, HRM’s supervisor of playground maintenance (for the western region of the city). 490-6226.
