Abstract

Residents of Ferry Village in South Portland had wanted the city to construct a fence so that children could play safely at the playground bordered by Jefferson, School and High streets. The city planted six white pines in the middle of the grassy portion of the lot, making it impossible to play baseball. Vandalism in the park increased after the trees were planted, and now children are playing other games out in the street. One longtime resident who complained the playground is the worst thing that ever happened to the neighborhood.
