Scotch Plains Park Is Scorching Hot, Parents Say

A surface temperature of 170.9 degrees was measured at the playground, located in Union County-owned Ponderosa Park.

Scotch Plains manages the park, and Township manager Jerry Giamis told the station that they are looking at planting trees to provide shade.
