Water fightEdit

On July 29, 2011, a water fight event was held by a large group of youth at the park, and received media attention. The event was organized on Facebook, and was held by water guns. It ended with the controversial temporary arrest of 10 participants, who the police announced to have done "unacceptable behavior."[2]
