  2. Ornamental fences and walls for decorative purposes, not exceeding twenty-four inches in height as measured form the established sidewalk or top of curb grade, may be located within a front yard provided the fence is not closer than three feet to a front lot line.
  3. Fences which enclose public or institutional parks, playgrounds, or public landscaped areas situated within areas developed within recorded lots shall not exceed eight feet in height, measured from the surface of the ground, and shall not obstruct vision to an extent greater than twenty-five percent of their total area.
  4. Fences on lots of record shall not contain barbed wire, electric current or charge of electricity.
