Occupy' Atlanta replaced by something actually fun

News

Woodruff Park, where the Occupy movement set up shop in Atlanta, has had a facelift. The tents and dirties have been kicked out and replaced with a play set.

Among the additions to the park: A pretty cool play structure (that's currently off limits) designed by Jeff Santos, a video game designer from British Columbia. The "ATL"-themed structure, which was selected after an international competition, includes two slides, monkey bars, and climbing grips.

The best part: The playground's construction was funded by Bank of America. It opens mid-July.
