People see broken things all around the park. Trash, broken glass, torn nets on the basketball hoops, broken water fountains. “You go to any other park in this city,” says a resident “and the water fountains work.

They haven’t worked for years.” In summers, kids use the playground sand to build castles as if they were at the beach, and they clog the pipes, but is this a reason not to fix the fountain?
