Who gets to do what in a public park?

That’s the question being asked in the neighbourhood around Toronto’s Marie Curtis Park, after a recent police sting operation that cracked down on people having sex in the park, CBC Radio reports.

Project Marie was a six-week operation by Toronto Police that used plainclothes officers to find people soliciting sex. Police filed 89 charges – only one of which was criminal in nature — against 72 people, the vast majority of whom were men.

While some neighbours have balked at the fact that men are cruising for sex in the park, Jen Roberton thinks that if a city’s public parks are to be truly for all members of the public, then cities have to design their parks for all users — including the men who have sex with men

I don't know if this is true since the state took over Belle Isle and made it a state park instead of a city of Detroit park, but there were always jokes about couples meeting on their lunch hour for picnics there, but they were actually finding the abandoned or undeveloped areas of the park to have sex. Everyone in metro Detroit knows that Rouge Park on the far west side is a hookup place for gay men.
