A number of Park Enforcement Patrol officers turned up at Lou Lodati Park Saturday and told a number of soccer players that they shouldn’t be playing in the popular Sunnyside park.
The officers said that the soccer players did not have a permit and were therefore not allowed to play an organized game there. The officers gave the players a warning and said that if they returned they better have a permit or they will face a summons.
A PEP officer told the Sunnyside Post that they had received a complaint about the soccer players taking up space in the park. He said that the officers will return to the park next weekend to make sure the soccer players comply with the rules.
If they don’t comply, the officer said, the organizer of the game will receive a summons or the equipment—such as their goal posts—will be confiscated.
