In the dark

To the editor,

Just to follow up on this week's On Patrol notice ("Ticket #05240783," May 24). I, too, walk past the Public Gardens each night. After the recent vandal attacks on the gardens people were urged to keep an eye out for suspicious activity after-hours. Only problem is, at night the Public Gardens are pitch black (save the inside of a few buildings as mentioned this week). How could anyone see vandals in the dark? I assumed the park was not lit due to budget constraints, but learn this week that the lights ARE on inside the few buildings in the park. What gives? And why can't we visit the gardens in the winter or jog in them?
