The authors of the June 15 article “What Happens in the Park Tends to Stay in the Park” are right to point out that park prohibitions ought to be enforced even-handedly, but their article makes it seem as if park prohibitions are not being enforced at all, which is not true. The Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy takes the enforcement of park prohibitions very seriously. The conservancy has a legal agreement with the city that requires them to do so. The main reason that some park prohibitions go unenforced is that the city does not give the conservancy enough money for park rangers.
