A large number of homeless individuals ha e taken over the park recently. They now monopolize several of the covered picnic benches, meaning we can't picnic at the park any longer. They also cause numerous messes, leaving cigarettes and alcohol containers around. Also, they sit and stare at the small children at the park. Due to the numerous homeless individuals in the park all day, my family has stopped using the park, as it is no longer safe. I pass by several times a day and never see police officers walking the park or checking out with these subjects.
