Children playing in Memorial Park this summer will have a place to escape the heat.
La Cañada Flintridge completed a shade structure at the park's playground late last month with the support of a local organization.
Mom's Club of the Foothills donated $1,275 toward the project, which had a budget of $13,000, according to Carl Alameda, senior management analyst for the city. The playground has received other upgrades in the past year, including a new tube slide and an access gate.
[For the Record, June 24, 2013: An earlier version of this story incorrectly stated that Moms Club of the Foothills donated $12,075 toward the project. That amount is incorrrect. The correct amount is $1,275.]
