Parks & Playgrounds

There have been a number of people sleeping in Bryan Park on the Woodlawn side by the shelter. It started with one hanging out in the shelter then has progressed to several in the field next to it. It is disturbing because of families using the shelter could be endangered by what we all know these people leave behind. A neighbor asked me to include his observation that unhoused frequent the shelter next to the baby playground, and the smell of pot is coming into the playground. I don’t know what is different, but the park is not as well mowed as in the past. It was always beautiful. I chalk it up to all of the rain. Just an observation. It is our favorite place in the world and we care about it. We go every day. Thank you for listening
