The newly constructed Gadsdenboro Park near the aquarium is beautiful. The layout was well thought out. The park has a fantastic field, a beautiful fountain, terrific spots for gathering and a superb jungle gym.

My only critique of the new park, and it is a major one, is the lack of shade.

Do we really have to wait five years for the trees to grow tall enough for ample shade?

Surely there must be other ways to provide shade.

This beautiful park and superb jungle gym are almost unusable due to the lack of shade.
