COTTONWOOD HEIGHTS — Cooler temperatures mean good news for children in Cottonwood Heights.
KSL Investigators have learned the city will reopen two popular play areas at Mountview Park this week because the slides aren't a burn risk to children now.
In July, a KSL-TV investigation showed the blue plastic slides at the park reached almost 200 degrees in the sun, and children were getting burned because of it.
City leaders fenced off the slides within days of the news report and went in search of a permanent solution.
To date, the city hasn't made a final decision on what it will do, but city officials tell KSL Investigators the city is considering building a permanent play structure.
