A. 
It is the intent of the Village of Cobleskill as an exercise of its police power to promote the general health, safety and welfare of the village by enacting this chapter since it is the finding of the Board of Trustees that the uncontrolled and unregulated use of the parks and recreational facilities of the village results in the creation of nuisances and other problems affecting the residents of the village adversely.
B. 
This chapter is intended to provide for the regulation of parks, playgrounds, pools and other recreational facilities within the village.
This chapter shall be known as the "Park Regulations."
For the purpose of this chapter, the following shall have the meanings ascribed to them. All other words shall have the meaning normally ascribed to them in regular usage.
