Its not that its 'incorrect', it just looks unfinished.

Its still usable and at least numbers are correct and in the right order!

not technically incorrect - but over-simplified to uselessness

Can't see this challenging any kid older than 4 or 5 for more than a few seconds. On the other hand, complaining to the city is silly if you actually want it fixed before your kid is grown. The practical solution is obvious - a couple local parents should just get some masking tape, some outdoor paint, and paint a better one.

The same thing happened at my daughter's old school. They redid the playground, and mostly did a great job, but they painted in new hopscotch and foursquare fields that were too small. The kids adapted their foursquare game, but stopped playing with the hopscotch field.

No such thing as wrong

Google "hopscotch" and you'll notice many variations of the hopscotch board, all of which are correct.

The complainer is just from a different hopscotch denomination. Celebrate diversity!
