Simple rule of thumb: It is not the role of government to entertain citizens.

I certainly understand the hard position the city staff is in.  They are trying to make sure people (mainly kids) are safe, but this could have been done better.  Why do we have to be such a nanny society?  If the risk is big then I expect government to take precautions.  But if the risk is small, then post a sign. Or at least work with people to find a good solution.  Slamming the gates shut is just too harsh.  Particularly for the kids who don’t understand these things.  God I miss the days of people making their own choices and living with the consequences.
