Tonight members of the Douglas Park Cooperative participated in the first weekly neighborhood walk.
Seven neighbors walked various streets between 30th Avenue NE and 25th Avenue NE for almost an hour. Participants included residents that earlier Monday came home to find a burglar in their home. The thief made off with electronics and other valuables.
During the walk we noted that Virgil Flaim Park (also known as Lake City Playground) could use some lighting, especially along the park's eastern edge, a perfect hiding area for suspicious people that frequent the area.
We noted one damaged light at the park and will make a report.
Rain and brief hail seemed to keep most people indoors Monday night. The area behind the cinder block walls on 30th Avenue NE, usually a popular homeless, drinking and drugging hangout, were uninhabited Monday evening.
Two suspicious people were seen walking in the direction of a house known to Seattle Police for its drug activity.
We will again do our weekly walk on Monday, November 21st at 7 p.m. We will meet at the Lake City Playground.
