COLUMBIA — Regina Tavarez and her daughters, Sierra, 8, and Lucy, 5, spent a sunny Wednesday afternoon at Cosmopolitan Park. Tavarez took some quiet time to read while her daughters enjoyed the array of playground equipment. They couldn't have asked for better conditions; it was a beautiful day and the playground had not yet been filled with the after-school crowd.
