The metal bar that the see saw uses as a pivot came undone, as it's actually two pipes screwed in to a connector. Screwing that back in to place will help, but a couple other things need to be done to fix it properly. Luckily nothing expensive.

The one in sunset-brooks and KL/girlscout camp just before the rock crossing were both taken care of.

The mud spot in barton is a much larger issue. NAP thinks woodchips fix everything but it is cleary a drainage problem... No fix in sight for that one...

Apparently the general public agrees on using wood to fix the problem, they just disagree on the size of the wood pieces. There are quite a few branches in there that you can use as slippery balancing beams.

You can stop avoiding it, it looks to be in working condition again!
