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

||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 .
