After last week's episode of eleven people drinking more than eight bottles of wine in broad daylight, in front of small children and toddlers, on the playground at Bowden Park, I think it is time for the park rules to be posted at all neighborhood parks and playgrounds. Apparently many people are not aware that it is illegal to consume alcohol on a public playground, or to leave bottles and cups of alcohol within reach of thirsty toddlers and preschoolers.
A posted warning would go a long way, especially since the police can't arrive in a timely enough way to confront the violators. So, let's work on prevention. It's worth a pound of cure.
