    Walking inside Edgewood park near the duck pond, two small boys ride by on quad ATVs escorted by an adult on foot. These are these very same quads that are housed at 364 Edgewood avenue. Fortuitously, there was a new haven police patrol car parked at the corner of Edgewood and Ella t Grasso. We told officer Vernon what we saw. His response was very disheartening... He said there was basically nothing he could do. That If he chased them and they got hurt he would get sued personally (this can't be true). And when we told him where the quads come from (364 Edgewood) and asked if they could wait and catch them as they came home, he basically shrugged that suggestion off saying it was not possible. We suggested a bike patrol inside the park to deter and possibly detain these criminals, to which officer Vernon replied "I don't have a bike".

    While we were having this conversation three other masked men on dirt bikes ride by with impunity, breaking serval traffic laws in plain sight of the impudent new haven police patrolman.

    All of this gives little hope of any real action on the ATV and dirt bike menace.

    What can be done now?

    Would it be possible to get the big floodlight at Coogan pavilion turned on so that we can skateboard at night?

    Edgewood Park Gazebo neat What
    lley and West Rock is covered in broken glass from liquor bottles. Gazebo and shrubs surrounding it are covered in trash from late night parties. This area needs to be cleaned up and this corner of the park needs to the monitor Ed by police at night, lots of illegal activity going on here every night. Park is supposed to be closed at sunset right?

    More trash cans need to be added to the Sprinkler Park. Me and a few others cleaned the Sprinkler area this morning of all its trash and I left after 12pm. When I returned at 4pm it was DISGUSTING all over again. Used diapers, cups, cans, paper, food containers, you name it, all over the place. Please add more cans.

    Also, can we get a warning sign with implementation. Something to the affect of keeping it clean and if the community can't abide by this rule then the Sprinkler Park will be shut off for a few days? It is NOT the parks responsibility to keep it clean, its the communities. If they cant help keep it clean then shut it down. The Sprinkler Park is a luxury that we all love but what good is it if it's nasty to be there.

    Please, as a community, lets fix this!

    Edgewood Park has a humongous sundial with water spouts built into it. It's a great place for kids to cool off in the hot weather. Last year the City installed a button for kids to push when they want the water to turn on. The fountain stays on for a few minutes, and then they have to push the button again. Well, I think the button is broken because the water's been on constantly for at least a week. This is running up the City's water bill and wasting taxpayer money.
