    I used to go there as a kid back in the 70’s,and play tennis on their tennis courts,(what is now basketball courts)for Custer HS in the 80’s before the ‘”PLAGUE” took over the city causing it to go to Hell!!

      same here… as well as many days spent in their pool, fishing in the lagoon, and ice skating rink in the winter. Can you imagine spending a few hours in that park now? Once in awhile I’ll drive through the old neighborhood and each time I do it’s just sadder and sadder, seeing how run down the north side has become. I feel for the older people who still try to maintain their yards. It’s a losing battle.

    Where is that violence prevention department when you need them? Had they put up some of those signs this wouldn’t have happened.

    I’m getting so sick of all the white on white crime. Let’s protest outside of Chipotle.

    excellent point! Maybe this will help explain all the black on black killings each day.

    What time does the protest start? Oh wait it was not a cop that shot him. Forget what I said.
