Playground equipment can become dangerously hot in the heat
As the temperature outside increases, so does the temperature of the equipment on the playground. WSFA 12 News conducted an experiment at Vaughn Road Park on Sunday at 3 p.m., the hottest time of the day. We used a thermal gun to see how hot some of the equipment in the park was. The hottest piece of equipment was a slide that was in the direct sunlight. The temperature of the slide registered at 144.1 degrees.
