Blast from the past: Retrograde progress

In 2007 I wrote a blog post about remembering a photo that I took in the late 1980s. It was of an adult couple having a pizza lunch by themselves on the playground equipment at Beckman Park in Lodi. It was one of those structures that had a spiral slide, a tube slide, a pole to slide down and a set of swings. The photo, one of my favorites, reminded me that there’s a kid in all of us.

What got me thinking of it back in 2007 was that I had driven by and saw that Lodi Park and Rec (I’m assuming) had taken out most of the structure leaving only the swings.

 I drove by again just recently and saw that now even the swing set is gone. There’s just a large plot of open dirt surrounded by a concrete border with a smattering of tan bark left to remind what was once there and what has been lost.
