Just Sayin' . . .

Columbia River Park
Parking on the grass
This is the last post on this particular issue.
(Click on pics to enlarge.)

These vehicles were parked on the grass at least since the day before (on Saturday) and were still here this morning (Monday).
Question: What's missing from this picture?
Answer: No tickets for parking violations.

Another view, in which the discoloration of the grass can be seen.  

This evening
The patch of brown grass starts right below the red tape.

Another view
This is why vehicles should not park on the grass.  Someone must have realized this; that's why the KEEP OFF GRASS signs were posted.  Apparently, however, there are no consequences for vehicle owners who do park on the grass.

Red tape
It should have been moved further front, along the edge of the sidewalk.

  I'm in favor of the park being renovated, but is anyone going to maintain it?

Cole, It is my understanding that this particular area is for overflow parking. That is why there is a light so far back from the sidewalk, why the signs are positioned there and why there is no curbing there. There is a metal grid installed under the grass to support vehicles. I would guess that either there were no available spaces when these folks arrived or they planned on being there for an extended period and parked there out of courtesy to others. Just guessin'
