Long Beach residents older than 12 no longer allowed to gather in the children’s areas of city parks
Long Beach, California – According to a new law adopted recently by the Long Beach City Council, adults and children over the age of 12 will no longer be allowed to gather in the children’s areas of city parks.
The new law also states that only parents who supervise their younger children, as well as children under the age of 12, are allowed to be present in those areas.
The purpose of this law is to protect the amenities that the “kid zones” in the parks offer for the enjoyment of children, such as swings, which have been destroyed on several occasions by adults who used them.
Another reason why this law was approved by the Long Beach City Council is the gathering of homeless people in these zones. On such an occasion last summer, more than half a million dollars in damage was caused by a fire at Admiral Kidd.
This decision is embraced by the parents in Long Beach, who said they will no longer be concerned about the safety and happiness of their little ones.
However, it’s unlikely that anyone will be arrested for breaking this law. Instead, there will likely be more park rangers who are in charge of making sure the law is followed.
