Don't Change The Wave

Victory

Hoober Bloob: Showed that many more people are willing to take responsibility for their own actions and safety.

Small children need the freedom to explore with proper supervision. Yes, sometimes they will get hurt, even when supervised. Mistakes happen, but to erect fences, walls, padding, or bars around anything deemed "risky" is foolish. Where does it end? Fence of the entire waterfront board-walk because a child could fall into the harbour?

Let common sense prevail and keep the wave as it is. If you don't want your children on the Wave, tell them, then follow up with effective supervision.

Don't Change The Wave

Please do not erect a fence or other barrier around or on the Wave sculpture.

I am aware of the risks involved in climbing an outdoor structure or art installation and I take responsibility for my own safety and the safety of minors in my care.

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      For my entire life there hasn't been a problem with it being the way it is. I grew up fine with it the way it is as did a lot of others. Sure taking precautions is smart but in this situation a child really cant get up there and get hurt without a lack of supervision. And if a child can then they are old enough to know that they shouldn't and therefore have to deal with the consequence. If you want to keep people safe from danger and you don't want people to climb on it and get hurt find a consequence for doing it. People may think twice if they can get fined for climbing on it.

      I'm against the principle of trying to safe-proof everything.

      I remember being a small kid trying and trying to get to the top with all the big kids, and that one time that you actually do make it lifts your heart so much.

      hell, I remember sliding down it and scraping my chin on the bottom part of it. NO BIG DEAL! I want to show my kids and their kids a part of my youth unchanged. DON'T MESS WITH THE WAVE!!!!!!!
