Flooded Ronan Park playground

A concerned citizen files a 311 complaint about the lake that emerged in the playground at Ronan Park in Dorchester after yesterday's downpours.

Note: The playground is at the opposite end of the park from the hole that opened up last December, so no, unplugging the hole wouldn't make a difference.

A concerned citizen asks:

Dogs are off-leash in Ronan Park consistently. Most are friendly, but some are not. My dog doesn't get along with other dogs. So, I keep him on-leash at all times, but off-leash dogs (friendly or otherwise) charge him. This provokes fights. Can there be better enforcement of leash laws here?
