Signs at the park warn that adult supervision is required, but Greenwood advised officials there is no barrier to keep children out of the water. She suggested a "strong, sensible fence" be put up.
Mark Hess, chief of Public Safety for Five Rivers MetroParks responded to Greenwood: "We will take your ideas and others into consideration as we evaluate this incident and look for ways to prevent such incidents in the future."
Greenwood frequents the park about once a week with her son and is concerned an incident like the one on April 21 could happen again if a barrier is not put in.
"This simple precaution could save many lives of the thousands of children and families that enjoy the MetroParks," wrote Greenwood.
