The latest complaint about the new section of Brooklyn Bridge Park: The metal blob thingies in the playground get too hot!

Park officials put up signs warning parents about the sizzling steel domes, and they're pinning the blame on slow-growing trees, which will supposedly provide enough shade to shut those crying kids up.

"It's outrageous," parent James Wagman, told the Daily News. "My first reaction was, 'That's nutty. Why did they put that in a playground?'"
