2. On the playground there were 2 tricycles that each had a foot pedal missing.
3. On the playground, the plastic play structure had a cracked area where a toy steering wheel once was. The cracked area was jagged to-the-touch and posed a pinch hazard.

A work order has already been placed for repainting and is scheduled for completion in June. The two tricycles with missing pedals will be removed from the playground and new ones have been ordered. The cracked plastic on the play equipment will be repaired.

The center has already placed a work order for the repair of the poured-in-place.

In the meantime cushioned mats will be placed in the fall zones of the slides.
