True.has been for years. I guess the Braidwood Police cant do anything about it. Or about the heroin anywhere else in Braidwood for that matter.

No nobody is going to the skate park and shooting up. they have cameras,people smoke the occasional bowl of pot and cigs but nobody is shooting up there. Braidwood cracked down on the park so its calmed down alot.

Kids r shooting up where and when they feel like it. The skate park just happens ti occasionally be a place to do it. Its not like when someone shows up to the park everyone thats there is shooting up and runs to shoot them up too. Teach ur kids not to do drugs and how to avoid any kind if peer pressure. Then, let them live life and hope u did a good job raising them. If u see signs of drug abuse then crack down on them. Dont think u can shelter ur kids from all harm. If u do its likely that when they get away from u they will be more likely to do drugs and wild things.

Skate parks have always had the stigma of being "drug dens". Yeah, some of the patrons may participate in illicit activity, but that is no reason to shelter your child from the truth. If you can honestly and openly talk to them about the dangers of narcotics, the skate park should be of no concern for your child. What better example of why not to do drugs than seeing a 30 year old man strung out on a picnic table with a bunch of 16 year olds.

I would not allow your child to go to this park alone. Bring your child and participate with them.
