The City of Arlington Parks and Recreation Department is at it again. Improving parks in the city, that is.
In addition to a complete playground renovation at River Legacy Parks (completed in July 2012), the department has added shade structures over the playgrounds at several existing parks to make playing there more comfortable—and that means more enjoyable—during the hot Texas summers Arlington, and Texas, residents know so well.
Parks receiving shade structures in 2012 are listed below:
Randol Mill, 1901 W. Randol Mill Rd.
H.A.D. Dunsworth, 1100 Waverly Dr.
Woodland West, 3200 Norwood Dr.
Gene Schrickel Jr., 4500 Park Springs Dr.
Martin Luther Kings Sports Complex, 7001 Golf Club Dr.
S. J. Stovall, 2800 W. Sublett Rd.
In 2010, shade structures were added to five parks, as well: California Lane, Carl Knox Jr., Cravens, Misenhimer, and Gibbbons, and improvements have been made to many others, including the new barrier-free playground at Randol Mill Park.
Now you don’t have to stay away from your local or favorite park because of the heat! And remember, these parks have a lot more to offer than a shaded playground, too. So plan a visit, and as the parks department says, “have fun in the shade this summer!”
