We figure the kids will make good use of it with skates, bikes, balls, etc. and we'll watch from our lawn chairs! It was approved by the fire dept. We are just in early stages of constuction (yeah!!), so it's not physically there yet. We;ll let you know how it turns out. Marty Roberts Two Acre Wood, Sebastopol where my slab was poured yesterday - over the radiant heat tubing!! Hard to believe it's really happening, but you can't argue with concrete!!
