I think that's great that everyone has another "alternative" idea. If we all had the same ideas and thoughts, we would all be married to my mother.
The fact of the matter is that someone DONATED this playground, no one DONATED a wooden playground or anything else...so unless you are willing to do so, there is no reason to put down someone else's DONATED items. If you would like to donate a wooden playground, I'm sure the school could use it. Dita has gone through the trouble of arranging all of this and it will be much appreciated by the children and parents of Holy Cross.
