   felony for sex offenders to be present in a public park building or on      
   public  park  grounds  or to loiter on a public way within 500 feet of      
   any of these places when persons under 18 are present in the  building      
   or  on the park grounds unless the offender is a parent or guardian of      
   a person under 18 who is present in any of these places.
