Dallas - A nice day at Klyde Warren Park smells like freedom and, well, plenty of rules.

High heels are expressly prohibited in the children’s area and there is a whole list of banned objects and activities, including feeding the birds.

Some cyclists on Facebook aren’t too happy that a bike was given a warning for being locked to a sign post.

Doing so is legal in the city of Dallas, but Klyde Warren has two bike racks, so lock your two-wheeler up there!

“If we do find a bike parked or locked to a pole or tree, park staff walks around the park to find the owner politely to use the bike racks,” park management said in a statement.

Cyclists Newsfix talked to said they don’t mind, but it would be nice if the racks were easier to find.

“It’s a little confusing if there isn’t any signage saying don’t lock up to random fences or anything,” says Molly Jones.

“Maybe have some signage on other corners of the park to say 'Hey there is a bike rack over here,'” says James Byers.

Maybe it’s a sign that a few more signs could create a peaceful paradise at the park.
