Karyn Regal at WBZ Newsradio asked the Parks Department and Kim Janey if they really believe the Common should best be avoided by decent people, as somebody claiming to be from Parks and Rec responded to a 311 complaint yesterday.
No, Parks and Rec said today, don't believe what they posted on 311 last night:
The comments posted on 311 in response to the inquiry on Boston Common do not reflect the values of the Parks & Recreation Department. We work every day to ensure parks are clean, safe, and welcoming for residents and visitors. All people are welcome in Boston parks.
We ask park users to continue to contact us when parks need attention and to call 911 for any emergencies.
