Safety: no particular features on the play structure pose any huge safety risks, although the swing structure is made of wood, so there is the possibility of splinters
Cons: The play structure is not very large and could be overrun with just a small number of kids. In this neighborhood, there are quite a few kids, so that possibility could be high.
Overall Assessment: Adair Park neighborhood is a cute neighborhood and knowing the history of the area is particularly interesting. Developed between the 1890s and 1940s, this area grew when Atlanta was transitioning from a railroad town to an urban area. Many of the houses are bungalow house with craftsman style detailing, which makes for a particularly nice drive. That being said, this playground is a nice neighborhood playground. Nothing too spectacular to make me want to drive to go to it again, but if you live in the area, definitely a place to check out!
