City to Replace All Wooden Play Structures
By Brian Shields
Albany, NY – Under a new law in New York, there are restrictions and regulations on some of the wooden play structures found in playgrounds and parks across the state. Concern about the structures was raised last summer when a study found that, in some cases, the wood had been treated with toxic chemicals. As WAMC's Senior Correspondent Brian Shields reports, the city of Albany is moving ahead with a plan to replace all of its wooden play structures.
