About two months ago, I came to the park to walk my dog and discovered that the field was surrounded by a fence. When I asked what had happened, people told me that they were going to reseed the field and turn it into a "passive lawn". I was outraged. this meant no more dogs, soccer players or students from nearby PS 289 could play on this field. This is a movement to get the field back.
Here are some photos of our protest signs.
