KNOXVILLE (WATE) – With the beautiful weather lately – lots of sunshine and temperatures near 90 – you may be thinking about heading out to the park or playground, but think again when you’re at a slide.
Slides are often in the sun and darker colors absorb sunlight and heat. The temperature of one slide read 124.5 degrees Fahrenheit. Imagine what that could do to a child’s skin.
Another slide in the shade that was also a darker color was only 72.5 degrees, a much better choice for a slide in the heat. That should be something to think about the next time you go to a park on a beautiful sunny day.
