FULTON, Mo. -

Fulton's Veteran's Park playground is in the process of being torn down because of multiple safety hazards.

According to officials, the dangers include head entrapment, swinging into a fence, getting hit by a golf ball and being hit by a car from a nearby intersection.

The City Council was alerted by its insurance company that the playground does not meet federal safety standards.

The Council voted to tear it down and build a new playground at a safer location in the park.
