Crackdown on 'Adult' Behavior in Dolores Park?

The Chronicle says there’s a dilemma about what to do about Dolores Park. I didn’t realize there was a problem, but one dude explains:

“A few weeks ago, for example, somebody invited 100 people to party, and 300 to 400 showed up,” said Gideon Kramer, who has lived near the park for 30 years. “The problem is there are too many permitted events already, and basically an atmosphere of lax enforcement by the Recreation and Park Department lets people make the assumption that they can go over there and do whatever they want.”

Well yeah, don’t we all go to Dolores Park because we can do whatever we want? (And man, I wish I could throw a party for 100 and have 400 show up.) Anyway, the lax enforcement also extends — allegedly — to rules about nudity and excessive drinking, and the story says this makes some residents sad because it is “preventing them from bringing their children to the park.” Yeah right! I see hundreds of kids having grand old times in Dolores Park like every day.

Bevan Dufty is gonna see about sending more police patrols into the park, so I’m gonna run down there right now and get naked and drunk before they start ruining all the fun.

    wow. can’t believe that with the increasing murder rate in the city, these people are more concerned about nudists and demanding more patrol at dolores? there’s always kids enjoying themselves in the park and i rather have nudists sunbathing there than gangbangers and crackheads.

    hey, it’s real frakking clear, if you come to Dolores Park, don’t park in someone’s driveway, and take your frakking trash with you. I don’t understand all the mom bashing in the SF Gate comments, maybe if people could actually read, they’d see that both mothers quoted seemed fine with the park usage.

    Just watch out for the sneaky Cop on the dirtbike beneath the palm trees adjacent to the bathrooms.

    He was hanging out there for a good 20 minutes looking for someone to harass or bust, not sure which.
