We often take our boys, 6 and 18 months, over to the Allendale playground. Recently we've been noticing that the playground is being trashed more ... even slight vandalism (playground rubber surface has either been burned or just ripped up)...and this morning ...someone left a pile of their business (#2) under one of the playsets! Seriously!?!?! My guess is that it's some of the older kids in the neighborhood.

What is up with people these days? We have a nice community, nice neighborhoods .... and this kinda stuff happens.

I dont understand why people that live right near the school dont call the police when these kids are hanging around at night. Same problem in my neighborhood where there are houses right next to the park yet somehow a ton of vandalism always happens without anyone knowing.

I hate to be a Gladis Kravitz (yep, an I Dream Of Jeannie reference), but I finally put the Spring Hill Police Dept num in my phone. This is just one of several things I've noticed about Spring Hill happening with more frequency. So now I make a call. It's better than letting things deteriorate!

Yes they do and thank goodness! My children go to school there and deserve a neat and clean (feces-free) playground.

It is a real shame. My wife and I took our kid a while back on a weekend to enjoy the park at Allendale, but couldnt because of the padlocks and 'video surveillance' cameras (which must be extremely stealthy because there were none to actually be seen).

Like Allendale Mom says, kids that actually go to this school is who it is for anyway and it should be protected.
