I think at one time the parklet was a good idea, but not so much anymore.
I try to avoid that area now. Every time I go by there is groups of people, usually the same people, yelling, swearing and smoking. The area is full of litter and has become a nuisance.
I don't know one family that can enjoy that space normally. The hot rods and excessively loud motorcycles are another story.
More police presence would be welcome by everyone, so we can have our neighbourhood back.
