As I stand outside at 10:40 p.m., I listen to the same drug users in the darkest corner of Whalley Ball Park as I do every night.
I do not understand why park lights were never installed at this corner of the park.
The drug users come and throw their needles over the fence where I live (I live in a townhouse complex right beside the park), as do many small children.
I have noticed the city has installed pay parking meters along 105 Avenue between University Street and King George Boulevard.
These were placed in the most well-used street for drug users and prostitutes and will probably be vandalized every half hour.
Maybe the city could install lights in the darkest part of the park to keep the people living around there a little safer instead of installing pay parking meters in the worst street in Whalley.
