Woodward Avenue New Haven, Connecticut
The grass throughout large portions of East Shore Park is over three feet high. It probably has not been cut yet this season. High grass is also growing through some park benches. The pathways are also covered with sticks, and the cracks are getting overgrown with weeds as well. This is very unsightly and embarrassing, as it reflects badly on our neighborhood and city to visitors from outside of it and from within it. It is also a health concern, as the high grass is an exceptional habitat for ticks. Finally, it's a departure from past practice: our parks have historically been very well maintained. I would appreciate the park could be properly maintained as soon as possible.
