Forty-nine out of 50 states had measurable snow on the ground this week, no wonder people need some new things to do indoors.

The OpenHouse Gallery in Manhattan debuted a “pop-up park” last weekend for visitors to spend time in for free. There’s a seesaw, piped-in bird sounds, and fake grass at this art installation/public space.

Would you spend time relaxing in a “park” like this during the cold weather?

    Cool one, how about an artificial grass on this extreme weather condition. I found some artificial grass ( http://ikesturf.com/artificial-grass-ontario/ ) which can withstand in any weather condition and that could be cold or heat. Their infill systems helps in cold climate and this makes the artificial turf resistant to freeze in extreme cold condition. They are having an advanced drainage technique and this helps to drain off the snow and ice. That will give a much better scene here.
