Make a Rope Swing, Uganda Skaters, and Renewable Energy at the Dog Park

Three interesting recent park-related links:

  1. Nationally-recognized Cosmo Park in Gilbert, Arizona may soon boast a "dog waste digester" that would convert the waste to methane gas that in turn generates energy to power a street lamp.
  2. Award-winning blogger Teacher Tom has a fun post documenting the Making of a Rope Swing. The ParkGrades team have recently seen several of these home-made swings in front yards of some hip Houston neighborhoods. This would be a trend we'd love to see take off!
  3. Time Magazine has an interesting profile of the first and only Skate Park in Uganda. How cool is that?!
