A disgusted citizen files a 311 complaint about parents of toddlers forcing kids over 8 to leave the playground at the Lawndale Garden Terrace Park off the Southwest Corridor Park so their rugrats can play there:
Adults with toddlers have been asking children 8+ to leave the park so the toddlers can play but this space was designed for older children (7-12 I believe) and is nestled between two parks made for the 1-9 crowd. This is the only play space for older kids in the area and, although this should be able to be solved with friendly discussion, is isn’t happening. All of my experiences with older children and younger mixed have been fine but this is a recent change of dynamic and its unfair and isolating to older kids.
