The playground at Watkins Regional Park in Upper Marlboro,
Md., was recently given a "Wizard of Oz" themed makeover
by the Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning
Commission. Based on the 1899 novel by L. Frank Baum,
children can visit six themed areas: Dorothy's farm house,
Munchkin Land, the Emerald Forest, the Emerald City, the
hot air balloon escape, and Dorothy's ruby red slippers.
