A park for the homelesss

A reader provides an opposing viewpoint -- and a photo -- to respond to Mayor Mark Stodola's declaration that he doesn't want to move homeless feeding programs from Riverfront Park.

I'm send these pics to you in response to the Mayor's "let them stay" attitude.  These are pics of our new Peabody Park from Sunday 1/17/10.  My friend's 3 yr old went to play in the playground tunnels & found the remnants of homeless camps, trash, & feces.  Why bother with LR developments if we're going to accept this type of outcome? It's a pitiful response to homelessness & it's unacceptable for the general public who want to enjoy a day in the park with their kids.
