  • Tattnall Square Park Macon, Georgia - Macon

    Even though our recreation rental contract forbids most of the practices in this picture, no violator suffers any consequence because there's no safety deposit required. Here's a best of list of problems:

    1. Almost all cars entering the park illegally drive to the pavilion, the area near the playground with the most children. The more beautiful the park becomes, the more families use it, and the more chance that a child or a park-goer will be hit. In this case, Kacy Keene (in red) was there with her child, and according to her, the child was nearly hit by motorcycles.

    2. Though the contract clearly states that renters only rent the space within the perimeter of the pavilion itself, this party has simply set up a grill and seating right on the public walking path, effectively preventing free passage.

    3. When people bring a bounce house into the park, they go far beyond the pavilion into the field, effectively closing off an entire section of the park far beyond the pavilion--a violation of the contract's perimeter rule. Since the contract welcomes bounce houses, it essentially welcomes a violation of the contract's own rules. Since renters bring bounce houses in on trucks, and since the contract allows bounce houses, the city's contract invites a violation of its own rule: Vehicles in the park violation: “No vehicles of any kind are allowed on the grass or within a park’s perimeter. Vehicles MUST be parked in designated parking areas.”

    4. Vehicles driving into the park damage the park grounds. The turf where cars regularly drive has been stripped bare of grass, leaving large, unsightly dirt patches, making the pavilion area look like a raggedy provisional parking lot.

    5. This party, like many, has set up a large grill right next to the sidewalk. These large grills are almost always carried in by truck, violating the no cars in the park contract rule. In this case, they wedged their trailer between five maples next to the pavilion. The trees have had their bark damaged already by vehicles operating in this area.

    6. The contract states that there should be no decorations taped to the facility, since it harms the paint. But there is no enforcement of this—or any—contract stipulation. Today, tape and nails cover the pavilion's new paint job.

    7. This party brought five cars in and out of the park, repeatedly violating the no driving in the park stipulation of the contract. Law enforcement asked them to take the cars out of the park after a few hours, but when the police left, the party brought two more cars in the park.

    The recreation contract does not work because it carries no consequences.

    Road construction and closures hurting locally owned business. The Bear's Den Restaurant is completely cut off from normal traffic on Oglethorpe Street. Intersection of College Street and Oglethorpe completely closed for 3 months or more. The only other 2 ways to get to the restaurant have large Road closed signs blocking most of the lane. The signs indicate that these roads are open for local traffic but due to size of barrier and wording a large percentage of people believe they can not continue. Since project began last Monday we are averaging 100 to 150 less customers per day. We employ 21 full time employees. With this decrease in sales, jobs are in danger. We have been in business in the same location for 25 years. At the very least we ask for the signs at the intersection of First and Oglethorpe be removed as well as the Intersection of College and Forsyth St. This loss of business is devastating to a lot of families working here. This business is adversely affected as long as the intersection is closed. We are asking for help as soon as possible.

    Cones have been there for months after it was reported the last time.

    There were over a dozen cars in the park again this evening. Neighbors report this every week, and eventually an officer comes out and asks them to move to the parking lot. This damages the park, and people drive far too fast where children are playing. The precinct needs to start ticketing on a regular basis.

    The bathrooms by the playground were recently renovated (port-a-potties were provided while renovations were completed), which is awesome! But now they are locked with no port-a-potties or alternative restroom option until at least 12pm when the tennis center opens. When you have young kids and toilet-training toddlers at the park playing in the mornings, it would be great to have a restroom option!

    The Tattnall Square Park playground equipment was vandalized with bright orange spray paint, including what appears to be a set of initials. It's all over the stairs and slides where the kids go right over it.

    After 5:30 there is basically no way to use the fields in the park. The lights have been out for YEARS. With all the people who use this park this issue needs to be addressed immediately. Several complaints about this have already been made with no action or response. It's dangerous and detracts from a wonderful park.

    This isn't quite the right spot for this problem, but I'm pretty sure it falls under Public Works. The new water fountain at Tattnall Square Fountain is pouring out water non-stop. It seems to be coming from inside the fountain, so this isn't just a little trickle of a leak. It's a bit of a gusher, and it's putting water all over the sidewalk.

    This intersection is dangerous. It needs a light (preferrably) or 4 way stop. If this is not the appropriate category to report this problem, please let me know how it should be listed.

    The interior trash receptacles in Tattnall Square Park are full and overflowing and in need of pick up.

    Thank you for servicing the park!
