Another hot day in Longmont!
The hot days have me thinking about an idea I’ve had for years. I’d like to see the Parks and Rec department build roofs/covers over at least a few of our neighborhood parks. When it’s 90+ degF and the sun is blazing, few are willing to take their children to a park. The equipment is hot to the touch, and it’s just too uncomfortable. If some playgrounds had a roof it would provide local recreation options for families when the temperature climbs. There is also benefit for the winter as covered play areas would remain accessible when we have snow on the ground.
