In Beverly (one of our neighboring townships and home of the R.M.V.) they find nothing wrong with having a children's playground beside a cemetery. A fence should separate the two don't you think? You wouldn't find this in California.
There are many cemeteries back here and they do not look anything like the ones I have seen in California. In Boston some are situated between high-rise buildings. Most of them do not have fencing around them to keep people out or keep the ghoulies inside.
