Enid News and Eagle
ENID, Okla. —
City of Enid administration:
Don’t have a heart attack, but I am actually impressed with something the city has done.
Are you sitting down yet?
The splash pad at 10th and Chestnut is nicely done.
The good, the bad and the ugly:
The splash pad (good) is adequately sized, has adequate water features and the “sunscreen” tarp is a very nice touch.
The splash pad (bad) theme paint didn’t last worth a darn. Get a refund on paint.
There are three different signs (at gates) with hours of operation, and each sign has different hours of operation.
The playground (good) is nicely sized and has a nice assortment of playground equipment.
The artificial grass is feet-blistering hot, and the sidewalk is 20-plus degrees cooler than the fake grass.
The whole park (good) has a nice layout and is nice looking.
There is an absence of shade/seating for parents and grandparents, especially the elderly and/or disabled.
Overall, I am impressed.
You may faint now after you read this, because it could be the only letter you ever get where I’m impressed with the city administration.
