I sent my nanny and my 3 y.o to the park midday today, (5/27). It was blustering hot. I sent a change of clothes for the 3 y.o so could go in the fountain. My nanny came home and said she could not change the 3 year old's clothes at the park. She let her go in in the clothing she was wearing and they came home wet. Hardly a big deal, but I am just concerned about her reasoning. She claims the park department is cracking down on naked children at the park because of pedophiles hanging around and perverts standing around taking pictures? Has anyone heard of this? I was at Diana Ross Park on Saturday, (5/24) and there was water to be played in. Many kids were playing in it. Most had clothing on but 2 or 3 were absolutely naked. I thought this was a bit weird given that it was the weekend and there were fathers a plenty hanging out with their children. What are your thoughts on this? One of the young children I saw on Saturday was too young to have been potty trained and I was concerned about him eliminating in the pool. Has anyone heard of a crack down on changing children at the park?
