These fences were put up all over the park, ostensibly to assist the green spaces to become and remain green. Not the most successful campaign, as the photos show.
Soon after they were erected, park-goers started removing the wooden pieces to play Light Saber Wars or Gawain Goes Beserk or something along those lines.
Also, the metal wire used to hold up the puny planks occasionally fell apart and left one to two inch wire pieces all around the former fences. Now, a few weeks later, some of the metal wires have come undone, and the fence by the park-side entrance to the playground looks pretty scary.
I couldn't find a park worker today, but it would be great if several people would mention this to Sunset Park employees. I don't want to bring a toddler to the emergency room with wire sticking out of his ear. I'm sure I'm not alone with that sentiment.
