Rita Cox Park Play Structure Recall

Posted on March 12, 2012


The City of Toronto Director of Parks has informed me, “a recall of a play structure component by Health Canada, which affects the play structure in Rita Cox Park.  The recalled element (the Slalom Glider playground slide – Recalled Slide) was blocked off and inaccessible to children using the play area. The playground will be inspected frequently to ensure the recalled component remains safely blocked off until it is replaced.

We have been in contact with the manufacturer of the recalled equipment, and they have agreed to replace the component with another, safer component as soon as possible. We expect the work to be complete within the next four or five weeks. This estimate is based on the manufacturers ability to supply us with the alternative component.”
