Mindowaskin Park Playground Needs Fencing!

This petition is to gather signatures in support of building a fence around the perimeter of Mindowaskin Park Playground to keep our youngest residents safe from traffic, the adjoining stream, and other dangers.

The park’s new design impedes caregivers’ sight lines and makes it easy for a child to slip out of view. It also makes it difficult to quickly cut through the play structure to get to children. Watching multiple children at the same time is nearly impossible.

We must be proactive and make this fence a top priority for our town. Residents were told almost a year ago that shrubs were being put in as a “natural barrier.” That has not yet happened, and we would like to forgo that option while instead having a fence installed in Spring 2020. A fence will be more effective than shrubs.

A fence surrounding our playground can keep our children within the play area and would prevent children from running into surrounding traffic on Park Drive or other undesirable areas.

We should not need an accident to happen to prove that a fence is needed around the Mindowaskin Park Playground. Our children deserve better than a wait-and-see approach until something bad happens.

Let’s install a fence around Mindowaskin Playground.
