Shade Systems is proud to announce it has recently provided a large cantilevered shade structure for the Bowie Skate Park located in Allen Pond Park in the City of Bowie, Maryland. The structure was installed over a five row bleacher system at the skate park to provide skaters and spectators with protection from the sun’s harmful UV rays as well as relief from the heat during the hot summer months.
“The City sought a shade structure that would fit within the confines of the area that could be easily installed, assembled, deployed, and removed, and that would be aesthetically appealing to park users” says Matt Reno, Project Manager for the City of Bowie. And that’s just what the City received. With its innovative Turn-N-Slide™ system, Shade Systems makes it easy to remove and reattach the canopy in case of inclement weather.
Reno said: “I was the motivating factor behind this improvement, as I have experienced firsthand, the need to protect your skin from the damaging effects of U.V. rays. As a kid, I was always outdoors, and not listening to mom about putting on sun screen has now resulted, at age 40, in numerous basal cell carcinomas having been removed from my body over the past 5 years. By having a shade structure available at the Bowie Skate Park, there was at least a place where skaters and spectators could find relief from the sun. Not to mention, it looks really cool!”
The City of Bowie thoroughly considered several shade manufacturers and chose Shade Systems for its excellent customer service, high quality, and durable products. “After visiting your website and drilling down through every possible link, I was able to quickly determine that Shade Systems would provide a product that will last, tolerate the abuse public park amenities receive, and provide staff with an easily deployable and removable shade canopy,” said Reno.
