Parkway Camping Update

Bob Slobe reported on Saturday February 26th that a large (50-60) group of tents had been set up near Camp Pollack, and he also saw a large continent of cars pulled into the space underneath the 12th street freeway overpass handing out food to campers.

This was posted about on Monday the 28th.

Yesterday, Bob called and said he saw police and rangers, with dump trucks for trash hauling, at the site cleaning up.

One assumes we have Supervisor Phil Serna to thank for continuing to provide this leadership and helping bring the Parkway back to a safe place for families in the Woodlake Reach to visit, as well as invigorating the discussion on how to help the homeless who want to be helped, and how to respond to those who do not.
