301-319 W Macarthur Blvd Oakland, CA, 94609, USA
Yesterday, while visiting the park with my 18 month old, we were followed by a bellicose dog without tags, which we later witnessed nip and lunge at a preteen boy near the basketball courts. At 8am this morning, a homeless man slept in our most frequented toddler play area with his two shopping carts and nondescript, but regularly seen pile of sharp metal, dirty blankets and black trash bags. We walked out of the park, spotted a couple needles under the Redwoods at the corner of MacArthur and Broadway (I was however glad to see the horrific pile of trash that expelled a wicked vomit smell left on the sidewalk for a week or so was gone - I'm sorry and very grateful that someone is tasked with this job, that I do not need to risk my health and time to clean up). Just as we landed on the corner of MacArthur and Broadway there was an unsupervised and very agitated large pit bull scaring pedestrians away from the bus stop. That's when I called the Oakland PD. Wish I had more time to help than making a public post here. Not going back to Mosswood for awhile.
