(KDVR) A member of the Los Angeles city council wants to ban adults who aren’t with children from hanging out in city parks.
Council Member Mitch O’Farrell said he proposed the ban after residents complained about people dealing drugs in parks.
O’Farrell said there would be signs up around the perimeter of playgrounds and adults who are not accompanying children could be ticketed.

KTLA reporter Christina Pascucci quoted the following statement, which she said was sent from O’Farrell’s office on Wednesday morning:
“As city leaders, we owe this to families to create safe spaces for their children at city play areas. Our park facilities should be a safe haven, and we must do our part to provide proper shelter for our kids.”
