Dear 100 Hour Board,

Where are the best swings in Provo located? (Long chains definitely make a swing better. And I'd bet there are other contributing factors.)

Dear fellow park lover,

Well, I've kept this over way too far, but things have been crazy. Right before the semester even started a friend and I started going to all the parks, but it wasn't that exciting and all the city parks all seem pretty much exactly the same. They all seemed to have the same swings and didn't really differ in any obvious ways. So it didn't seem that exciting to finish checking all of the parks, and the semester got crazy and I never finished. But I can unequivocally declare the worst swings in Provo and maybe the worst swings of all time. 

Worst Swings in the World (Edgemont South Stake Park)

It was a small park that was connected to a church building, and the swings were the worst things in the world. Never swing there or you will definitely be sad. There were puddles of water underneath the swings and they were all mismatched and most were too long. I can't overstate how terrible they are.

Keep it real,
Sherpa Dave

If you are willing to go slightly outside of Provo, I think the best swings in the area are at Nielsen's Grove Park. They may not be the absolute best in terms of swinging comfort, or speed, but they are very unique, tall, and being on a free rotating stand adds a whole new dimension of fun! Just look up the park on Google Maps to see some pictures of the swings if you doubt it.
