Install Shade Sails on Stuyvesant Town Playgrounds

This petition had 155 supporters

The playgrounds in Stuyvesant Town are a wonderful amenity to the property, however, in the summer months, shade is hard to come by.  This is problematic for three reasons:

1. Without shade, the equipment gets incredibly hot, which, at worst, leads to skin burns and, at a minimum, renders the equipment useless because it is too hot.

2. The unrelenting sun causes dangerous UV exposure to kids and parents/caregivers; and

3. Kids and parents/caregivers can easily overheat because there is little shade in which to cool off.

Shade sails are a perfect solution to this problem.  Not only do they allow for customized shaded areas, they are also an attractive aesthetic addition to the playground area.  Shade sails are convenient, because they can be dismantled and stored in the winter months to prevent snow build-up and wear & tear.
