Children's Safety at the 110 1st Street Park

This petition is in regards to an extremely unsafe city park adjacent to The Waldo School, located at 110 1st Street, Jersey City. This newly constructed park includes two enclosed dog play areas and an area for children to play in. The children's area, which clearly contains hopscotch and other games, has concrete flooring and tables and chairs with rough edges, which is unsafe for children to play on. We find it unacceptable that the dog park area is evidently much safer than the area designated for children, as the dog park has a much softer surface. The concrete flooring poses a safety risk to the children who play outside, as children can fall and sustain very serious injuries. 

We are proposing two options to make the park safer for children and we are requesting the city to take immediate action. One option is to designate one of the two dog park areas as a children's play space. The other option is to install a padded play surface in the area designated for children. Again, we are requesting immediate action for the safety of our children.
