Wasn't alway's that way. Used to be some good families that lived there in the 60's / 70's.

The drug scene probably pulled Sheldon Park down.

There was another housing / apartment development built on Saxonburg Rd. back in the 80's. I'll bet it is as bad.

How is it a drain on the community. A portion of business comes from the people that lives in Sheldon park. An there plenty more that I could comment on that but I will keep this short. A bunch of kids running around a playground... that is absurd. I think we should tear down the swings first. Here's a thought tear it all down. Some will find shelter elsewhere others will really be a drain on the community by stealing an robbing the hard. Working people that reside everywhere here
dont worry bout it

I think it's funny to see that people have so much to say about sheldon park. But wont lift a finger or a voice to help out the situation. talkin about manners,uuumm,calling people that you do not know slobs.I wouldnt really call that manners either! Not everybody in that community is not like that,and its sad to see that they half to be subjected too it!!The whole world is changing not just one community.Its sad that you cant even send your children to school anymore without the teachers trying to screw the students!!Hows that for a wake up call?

I grew up in the eighties and showing Park I live there for 10 years then I move out of state and when I came back I lived another ten years and Sheldon Park the place has drastically changed kids do than what they do now vandalism petty theft it was probably the worst back in the eighties today I think it improved 1000 percent the playgrounds are safer there's two Community buildings and endure all year around basketball court to help these kids develop and grow something that we didn't have back in the eighties so don't judge them Park if you never live there

There are good and bad families in every community in America and just because the government I was trying to segregate and control black people in the 80s by making them County housing back then there wasn't even really that many black people in some poor we had for black kids in our class most of the kids in her class came from showing Park a lot of them went on to do bigger and better things and just moved on with their lives the black people however State and multiplied that's why the population now is predominately black back then in the eighties it was predominantly white FYIi
