Denver Post calls Denver proposed park fees "overreach"

RJ Sangosti - The Denver Post
With obesity rates on the rise and significant efforts being made to encourage people to exercise, it's astonishing to think Denver is considering putting up barriers to organized fitness classes in its parks.

But that's just what it's doing, and we think it's an example of overreach.

Don't the parks people have better things to do than requiring a stroller mom exercise group to have a $1 million liability insurance policy, comply with a dozen pages of regulations, and pay a fee to work out in a park?
