Why are park benches so hard? Surely it's possible to have bean bags and sofas, covered with a durable, washable material. These would obviously have to be attached securely.
In Europe, kid's parks have a kind of "carpet" made from recycled tyre rubber, but that's not what I mean (nor the link immediately
below). I'm talking about street furniture.

||Durability. If you've ever owned garden chairs, you'll know how quickly the padded cushions for them deteriorate, even when waterproof; I imagine the Parks Department doesn't want to have to keep replacing them.
||P.S. If the seat's too hard, sit on the grass!
||Whilst barefoot, of course.
||I think that would be a great public service job .
'Sir can I freshen up your cushion ?'
||The next step would be Lazy Boys and plasma screens at bus stops . Probably a future level of public .
