The kids like to sled down the hills and have great fun. The parks belong to the people who live in Bridgeport. Shame on the Mayor, Bird Brain.

The parks were closed due to the city not having enough funds to pay for "unnecessary" plowing. People complained last year because their streets were not plowed "in a timely manner". The closings would allow the city to concentrate more on traveled roads and city streets and not the parks.
Well, if the park streets are not to be plowed then the city should consider posting a sign(s) at the entrances to the parks stating that visitors may pass at their own risk to icy and snow conditions and that the city is not liable.
Kids love to sleigh ride and some of our parks have great hills for that, so let's enjoy the parks, Finch! Is this another freedom we are to lose?
