Abstract art play structure, Beard Brook Park worth saving, restoring

As Modesto changed, so did Beard Brook Park. The all-but-forgotten abstract structure merely represents another piece of a decaying park that likely is the last place parents would take their children to play in Modesto. Liability concerns long ago changed the designs and materials used in modern-day play structures. The city needs to save both, and the Modesto Art Museum is willing to help with the art piece.
