Setting sails

The Big Toy at Keizer Rapids Park is currently closed for improvements, but regular visitors can look forward to more shade on hot, sunny days when it reopens. The city is installing shade sails over some of the most frequently used spaces. In the photo above, contractors drill holes for the posts that will anchor the sails. The project is being paid for with money from a parks services fee collected on utility bills and a donation from the Keizer Parks Foundation.
