      Water seemed to stay gathered at the bottom of this slide.

      This metal train has some paint starting to deteriorate. Kids could accidently get chips of this paint on their hands and transfer this to their mouths. Could result in lead poisoning.
      The wood on this pavilion could probably use some chemical treatment to help strengthen the wood.
