The trend now is to minimize any risk whatsoever with playground equipment, so monkey bars have effectively gone the way of the dodo. In our neighbourhood, they took down the 'unsafe' wooden playground apparatus with tire swings, wooden beams for balancing, flexible bridge, etc. and replaced it with 2 plastic jobs that bore even 2 years olds after 5 minutes. Fun effectively eliminated, all in the name of safety (and fear of lawsuits).
