The city of Cape Coral is being proactive in providing safe, cool places for children to play.
The play ground at the Yacht Club beach in cape coral is closed for the next two weeks while workers install a shade cover. The newly rebuilt handicapped accessible playground opened about a year ago. It’s nice but it’s hot. Bob Burns is parks superintendent for the city.
"45 what we have is – we aware like the rest of the country is about the sun and what it can do to people’s skin and whatever. When we put the new unit in it was somewhat larger, we had to trim back some limbs so they were out of the reach of our kids, so that took away some of our shade so we wanted to come up with a shade cover."
The shade cover fits over the playground sort of a like a tent. It cost about 17 thousand dollars. Burns says they will also be installed in two other city playgrounds.
