It's a Step - Playground Gets Official Sign

Yep. It's a playground.

After a long, long time, the Sunset Park Playground is officially labeled with playground rules. I love rule number one which prohibits adults without children from entering. Yeah, right. Today I counted six men both on the equipment and on the benches - no children attached to them. (Don't worry, there are often women without children there as well. I just didn't see them today.) To assist with interpretation, there are handy pictures at the bottom to clarify rules regarding alcohol, bicycles, having children with you, trash, dogs, and smoking. We'll see if the signs help those of us who actually confront bicycle riding smokers who litter in the playground without children.

I'm not 100% sure, but I think one of the signs says that the playground closes at DUSK, and the other sign - at the opposite entrance - says that the playground closes at 9 PM. Dusk is so much better, considering the earth's axis. Do you think we can get the playground locked overnight occasionally now?
