Since the Cold War is now over, why is the Polaris missile in Centennial Park still standing?

There aren't any plans to melt the guns, said Fred DeVictor, the city's director of parks and recreation.

"Basically, it's not an issue of world peace and that kind of thing," DeVictor said. "It was a gift. It's not hazardous, or a piece of play equipment. We don't have any plans to remove it."

The U.S. Navy donated the submarine missile back in the mid-'60s.

"It's not something that's hurting anything," DeVictor said.
