I am copying this post below from a discussion I started in the 'Discussion' section. Other Leslievillers have responded to my post to say that they've seen increased drug use at the park as well. You can head over there to see the full discussion.
I just wanted you to be aware of this story from 2 weeks ago. This park is full of kids every day and if the drug users don't mind shooting up/smoking crack in the broad daylight in front of our kids I worry that they would feel comfortable enough to harm or take one of them or leave their pipes/needles lying around for someone's toddler to pick up. Anyhow here is the post:
A couple of days ago my nanny saw someone shooting up in the trees at Lesliegrove Park around 4pm in the afternoon. The park was full of kids using the splash pad and playground. I know when I've walked past the park at night I've seen some questionable characters - just wondering if anyone else has had any experience like my nanny had in the daytime? Anyone every alerted the cops? Were the responsive?
I'd just hate to see a kid pick up a needle or worse have an out of it drug user/drunk/whatever harm a kid or caregiver...desperate people can sometimes do desperate things.
Anyhow, I just wanted to get a read from others in the neighbourhood. Maybe if it's happening a lot we need to all call the cops and our counsellor often to increase the daily patrols of the park.
Interested to hear any stories.
