On this day in our history back in 1969, Schenectady used to have a portable playground for the end of summer.
Reporter Carmen Holloman told us city officials wanted to make sure all kids got a crack at playing on the playground.
Then parks and rec director William Eddy said the unit gave the parks and rec department flexibility.
The portable playground had ping pong tables, a volleyball net, game tables, and the back of the trailer could be used as a stage complete with a sound system and lights for young performers.
No word how long the portable playground lasted.
