One solution creates another problem?
City Hall reads Hoboken411
So the day after appearing on Hoboken411, the city installed a wood plank at the northwest corner of the Elysian Park dog run. This will likely put the kibosh on rocks bleeding onto the sidewalk, however – now dog owners are already complaining that “the dog run will now effectively turn into a muddy lake each time it rains!”
See how hard it is to make all of the people happy all of the time?
There are possible solutions…
I believe this issue is not that easy to solve, and requires “engineering” and possible costs to make right. Technically, I’d install similar boards along the northern fringe of the park along Sinatra towards Hudson, as to force the water into the grassy section to the west – where it can at least be absorbed. May not be the best solution (other than re-grading the park at massive expense), but at least I came up with one!
What would your suggestion be?

Hoboken411 reader Dawne noticed that each time it rains, the dog run at Elysian Park sheds buckets of dirt and gravel onto the sidewalk of Frank Sinatra Drive:

“How hard is it for someone in parks to put a 2 x 8 board in the corner of the Elysian dog run so the gravel doesn’t keep pouring out onto FSD when it rains??”
