is there really a true need for a kids playground in that area ??

and i think we've all seen what these playgrounds actually transform into once the sun goes down, or the novelty of a new play area wears off.

When i pay my respects to someone,the last thing i want to be around are a bunch of kids screaming and hollerin.For me that has always been more of a time for a moment of silence and respect.That's just me.

oddly enough, i don't think a playground needs to be in that area. I agree with 60 gunner, its hard to pay respects when kids are playing, could they possibly find another spot? i am sure knoxville has plenty of others spots that would be better in choice.
