Trail should be cleaned up and patrolled
There is a beautiful, tree-shaded walk along the east side of our community center all the way to where Second Avenue connects with Front Street South.
Beautiful, that is, except for all the trash and litter the high school kids who gather there leave behind. It’s a place where people walk their dogs and their kids in strollers — a little jewel of a place — but it is ruined with the hoards of smoking and littering kids. We’ve even seen what looked like it might have been a drug deal going down in the trees in there.
I would hope to see this area cleaned up and patrolled. I realize our police force is more than busy already, but it seems such a shame to have this beautiful place look like a slum.
