Park Slope parents want city to freeze out ice cream trucks
A group of parents in Park Slope is calling on the city to ban most ice cream trucks from selling their sugary, cold fare within Prospect Park.
Organizers of the 7,000-member group Park Slope Parents say the constant flow of ice cream trucks announced by their iconic music has proven too tempting for their kids.
Not everyone, however, is on board with the proposed ban. Some local residents say it's a silly cause, and parents just need to learn how to say 'No' to their kids.
Parents who support the ban say although they want to ban all ice cream vendors from selling within the borders of the playground, they would consider allowing socially conscious and organic ice cream trucks to sell within the park.
