Re: [MPD-5D] 31st & South Dakota Park is in Need of Attention
- Establishing a team for weekly park clean-up is a great idea! DPR also needs to do their part in emptying the trash bins, and maintaining the grass.From: "rlb1996@..." <RLB1996@...>

Subject: Re: [MPD-5D] South Dakota Park is in Need of AttentionI agree wholeheartedly with Toni. I am a new Gateway resident and was so excited about the opening of the new park. I have two children, ages 4 and 6 and they love having a park in walking distance.
However, if we can not do something about its current state, I will be once again loading them into the car to go to a park in another neighborhood.
As Toni stated, the trash cans are overflowing, causing trash to be strewn about. My son was about to go down the slide, but stopped when he saw some green liquid substance on it. There were empty "cigarette" rolling paper boxes on the ground and cigar cases, beer cans, etc.
Definitely not what I want my children exposed to. I am willing to be a part of the solution and maybe have weekly park clean-up teams. But, we also need enforcement of park usage rules, for example what time does the park close, after dark? Perhaps a place for larger trash items? We need help!

Residents of the Gateway Community are saddened to see trash, over flowing cans and overgrown grass in this beautiful new park (see attached pictures). For the first time since its completed construction, I almost turned my son away as I didn't want him exposed to the mess.Sincerely,
A Disappointed Gateway Resident
