Gabriel Hernandez, 6, plays on the monkey bars following the grand opening of McKinley Park playground in East Sacramento on July 31. The playground had been closed since July 2012 after an arson fire destroyed the equipment. Just hours after the ceremony, a playground structure at nearby Sloat Elementary School was set ablaze. The next day the playground structure at Caroline Wenzel Elementary in Greenhaven burned.
