Citizen complaint of the day: Hopping mad at Draper Playground

Hopscotch board at Draper Playground in West Roxbury

In what has become an annual rite of spring in West Roxbury, a concerned citizen has complained to the city about the hopscotch board at Draper Playground on Washington Street:

Hopscotch painted wrong, too big and stops at 7.

Give me Fallon Field any day.

But thanks, changed to Draper Playground, which I see is what the city calls the playground.

Would people thin it's OK if they made a football field that's 90 yards, or a baseball diamond without 3rd base?

Compare to those, football fields in the US are 90 yards.

I'm conflicted on this. Yes, hopscotch tends to be a game of 10 squares, but was there a space constriction they had to work around? However, since I don't think there are organized hopscotch leagues, I don't see how the comparison is valid.

Yeah, West Roxbury- It's where privilaged white families with long standing political connections reside.
Do you also want the city of Boston to wipe the dust off all the stop signs in W.Roxbury as well.
