I thought myself fortunate to spend a few hours at my private health club just lounging in a massive, air conditioned and glassed in swimming pool all by myself. I thought about back when I was a kid and went to one of the civic pools during the summer. Full of kids and kaos and sunscreen. $40 a month for membership beats the hell out of any civic facilities.

Maybe the tragedy of the commons isn't quite so severe in Toronto.

Ok, now that really is cool & a very good use of tax money.  At first I was thinking that $5600 was a lot for just a big solid table but compared to useless statues or other silly things cities do, it is money well spent.

It may be a bit expensive, but it's functional and looks as good (or better) than some public art that costs a lot more. And any vendor in/near the park can probably rent out paddles and balls.

Do you find that the ball bounces off the table faster than on a standard TT table?  How about the surface, is it smoother or more rough than a standard table?

They look great. They have certain drawbacks as far as table tennis goes: wind & rigid nets.

I'm normally the first to bash government spending but $5,600 for this isn't bad, simple physical item that encourages people to be active outdoors. It would be nice if they were sourced locally as well. If you went through the parks budget there would be a lot more than $5,600 in waste, considering a single patronage job is at least $60K a year.

lacrossestar83: I bet it would look like the comments on TFA


Yeah, this one was a winner...

"They're going to be real useful in January or on a wet, windy day. "

Because all of the rest of the park equipment is useful all 365(and 1/4) days of the year. What a bunch of short sighted morons. Nobody can use the playground equipment, the basketball courts, or the picnic tables on those days, either.

As for the cost, that seems reasonable, too, considering that these things will last for decades. 40 years wouldn't surprise me, and the only maintenance needed would be to replace whatever they have up as a substitute for a net.

Well, that and removal of the graffiti by disrespectful assholes.

There was a concrete table at a park near where I was based in Germany.  Loads of used condoms laying around.  Must have been just the right height.  Also, there is a tennis court near me that has a small covered area off the side to get out of the sun and cool off I guess.  It has the fabric on the fence like the rest of the court so I figured it would be the kind of place teens would screw.  Looked in the trash can and yep, used condom.

Perks is the councillor for the ward I lived in until recently (Parkdale). Although it's gentrifying, it's still quite low income, with lots of families living in small apartments with no amenities and some extremely active community groups (especially of Tibetan refugees, artists, and psychiatric survivors.) This is a really great initiative for this area of town - the public services get used really well (the library is constantly packed and a hub of activity, for example) and people treat the amenities really well. There's occasional drug/gang related stuff, but it's actually a fantastic, community-oriented place, one of my favourite neighbourhoods in Toronto, and I think it's likely they'll make good use of this.

I seem to remember a summer when Chicago had decorated ping pong tables downtown. Not only did no one smash them up, but I actually played a few games with total strangers. I think it was the year after the summer of the decorated cows - another big hit that wasn't "smashed to bits."

Seriously, Chicago is a lovely, clean city. Even the beaches are immaculate. Just like any area with 2 million+ people, it has some run down areas, but it's one of the best places I have ever lived.

Does anyone really think they'd be a good idea in the US? Realistically, I doubt they'd last a month.

In much of the US, the tables wouldn't last a week without graffiti. Meth heads would have sex on them, or under them. Homeless drunks would sleep on/under them, and would fight over them. Eventually, tweekers would figure out that there is probably rebar inside the table tops, and would break them open and destroy them for the $5.00 worth of scrap steel inside.

Speaking from experience here. Meth heads stole the $1500.00 sprinkler controls in our neighborhood and sold them for a few bucks they're worth as scrap. They did this repeatedly, and according to the police, it's a common crime everywhere. See also: copper theft, etc.

// And no teabaggers yelling SOSHALISM!! at any hint of friendly cooperation

Probably because it's closer to capitalism than socialism.  Though I've not lived in Chicago in years, I recall a per-player fee for such organized sports.  Like Illinois' per-gallon Motor Fuel Tax the more you use government assets, the greater your expense.

publicly owned and the managers would be tasked with setting the price of output to its marginal cost, 

First off, it's only capitalism if it is run privately and for-profit. Something publicly owned charging a marginal fee to cover costs is -by definition- socialist. More directly to your point, there are costs associated with organized sports that go beyond facility maintenance, like referees, officials, and equipment use. If you're just playing pick-up games there isn't a per player fee for many of the sports you listed (in Chicago).

EngineerAU: What Plants Crave: Headline In America: "More taxpayer money wasted removing new ping-pong tables from public park after the city is sued by the mother of an unattended child who injured his leg on a the sharp corner of the net while jumping back and forth across it."

Toronto is no longer in Canada? Watson, is that you?


I think he was suggesting what the headline would be if it had been done in the US instead of Canada.

/although as others have noted, there are some in various places in the US already

God-is-a-Taco: Canada really is turning asian at a remarkable rate. It's like watching magic or something


If you mean the Greater Toronto and Vancouver areas, you're right.

Besides that, not so much

OnlyM3: Because 6k per table is such a wise investment.


The thread above this one is about how we're abandoning billions of tax dollars' worth of military equipment in Afghanistan. Those tables seem like a nice amenity, and certainly a wiser investment than abandoning military equipment on the other side of the world.
