Rocket Slide

A neighborhood park in Keokuk, Iowa, contains a blast from the past: a rocket slide. I was surprised to see one of these still in use. This brought back fond childhood memories of a rocket slide elsewhere -- including memories of being afraid to go down the rocket slide.

A bit of web searching reveals that the slide was recently restored, brought into compliance with current playground safety requirements, and placed in Keokuk's Triangle Park. I'm glad to see that new generations get to enjoy the slide while past generations recall memories of playing on the rocket slide.
