Made in the shade

The hammock park has posts and canopy for shade and can accommodate up to 40 hammocks. Rogers donated land for the hammock park and Equip hammocks built it at no cost to the city, said Jim White, director of Rogers Parks and Recreation. Festivities on Saturday include hammock give-aways, free soft drinks and water, and a ribbon cutting. (Right photo) People try out hammocks Saturday during the opening of the park.
