Parks, Not People


In Australia, Grant Cohen and couple of other parents began taking their children to Caulfield's Princes Park a couple of evenings each week. The youngsters would run around the park and play games. But after a few weeks, they were warned by park officials that organized groups were not allowed in the park. Officials say that even a single family could count as an organized group under park rules. "If even a few kids are banned, what's the point of having a park? They might as well put up apartment blocks and cut our rates," said Cohen.
