John, very frustrating indeed. The shorebirds love(d) those puddles.
There clearly has to be better communication between the folks who make those decisions and an educated person/committee who could advise them otherwise. COA?
Of course, a man-made pool or two created and managed for shorebird habitat at that end of the park would be too much to ask. Would be nice, though.
