It was a scorcher all up and down the East Coast today, so what would be better than hitting the pool? Well, actually getting in the pool would have done it, but taking a tour of the famed Gwinnett Parks sights was pretty good too.
This is the shallow end of an pool at Rhodes Jordan Park. It's so shallow kids don't have to have learned how to swim yet...they just get to have fun. I've never seen anything like this in Atlanta. Have you?
Some of the lifeguards at Rhodes Jordan pool.
This is part of the big slide, and the red steps to get up to the top. Hard to tell what you're looking at, but I like the picture so put it in here anyway.
This is one of the many new playgrounds going in in Gwinnett County. Somebody sure is doing something right up there.
This little guy is starting on his scooter. Somehow I think he'll be skateboarding in no time.
This is something I saw over and over... putting highly-used multipurpose trails near other play provision sites. It keeps the eyes on the sites and keeps them safe. Great crime prevention by environmental design tactic.
OK, how do you do this? Amazing.
A great water fountain in front of City Hall in Suwanee, Georgia.

Many thanks to Rex Schuder for the wonderful tour. Gwinnett should be so proud of their lovely parks.
