Heavy Canvass (near Patrick Henry Mall)

I need maybe (at most) a 5 ft by maybe 10 feet long piece of heavy boat canvass to make a tent style roof for a playground set. Any color will work. I imagine it being white, but whatever. The Rainbow comercial playground set originally had a wooden roof, but the wood is too rotted to reuse. I'll weld up a pipe frame out of 1/2 or 3/4 inch water pipes to fit a canvass roof, and maybe zip-tie a sheet of canvass to the pipes. Without the roof, I'm afraid the kids sitting on the top railing, which is 6 feet off the ground, can get pushed or otherwise fall backwards off the railing. A roof of some type would give them something to grab onto fast, in the event they began to fall backwards. I don't want to use cheap Harbor Freight plastic tarps. Maybe some canvass like they use at Busch Gardens for awnings would last a long time. I live behind the Patrick Henry Mall and work at Langley. Can pick up between home and Langley any day. Might wait til the weekend if much further. -paul
