A lot of people in this city just don't care about the mess they make and they sh*t on everything nice for others to clean up. I'm for a few Pitbulls here. Cuban-American rappers included.

It wouldn't surprise me. They had already damaged some of the benches.

It's funny, I've been watching a show recently called King of the Road, which is like a scavenger hunt with skateboarding involved. You'd be surprised at what skateboarders are able to grind. One guy did a trick on top of a fire hydrant, of all things.

Are we 100% sure it was a skateboarder? I don't like them ruining the benches, but let's make sure we have proof with this dog. It's a real shame though. :(

Absolutely amazing park. I wish we could have similar quality of urban parks throughout the city. The attention to details, the whimsy, the beautiful fountain, the benches, the paving. It's what good public realm looks like.

Got to see the fountain working for the first time today, it is just incredible. Overheard a couple of guys panning the fountain, I guess everyone doesn't appreciate this excellent addition to our city.

I fully agree, though I should say that I had a pop over to Grange Park the other day, and all those positive elements are present there, too. It's great to see.

Slowly but surely, we're getting our civic shit together. Even though GP isn't yet fully open, it's worth checking out as well if you like what's happened at Berczy.

I haven't gone there yet but it's on my to do list. I've heard many good things about it as well. The only negative are those stupid cheap plastic city garbage bins.

I think the best course would be to have a community not for profit in charge of the park. Still, I'll give the parks department and the people of Toronto to not do or allow anything stupid here.
