The standing water around the Sycamore tree. This water is a swamp area. It is dirty and disgusting. It is very hard to keep dogs out of it because it is a big area. It needs to be cleaned up. Maybe put a more stronger fence around the area for now. Please do something about this standing water ASAP. IT IS NOT SAFE FOR OUR DOGS!! Such a beautiful park, with an unsafe standing water!!

Oclott Park walk path, where it offshoots to Jackson Creek Middle School. There is a constant trickle of water that streams across the path and down the offshoot. On cold days it forms a treacherous layer of ice. Very difficult to cross that area when walking around the park and extremely dangerous for students walking to JCMS. Not sure if it's a natural spring or if the Olcott Building is leaking, but water needs to be diverted from running across the walking path. Someone is going to get hurt.

Trails

Bloomington Rail Trail, Bloomington, IN, USA

Case Date:
3/7/2021

About .5 mile into the rail trail is a large homeless camp (off Country Club) from the entrance. The sites continue to grow & pop up. There are multiple concerns with this. 1. Contamination with the water by litter, human waste, & drug paraphernalia. 2. Affects to wild life through trash & humans inhabiting their homes. 3. Land is affected by litter & drug paraphernalia such as glass pipes & needles. 4. There are safety concerns with children playing in the creek due to human waste & drug paraphernalia being in the water, they could get diseases from contaminated needles or step on glass pipes. 5. This is a dangerous location for the homeless as they are in a flash flood location. It has completely flooded out on 2020 & 2019. 6. Safety concerns with those using the trail or those who live in the neighborhood on the other side. One of our tenants contacted the police for fear of someone being outside of his home in the middle of the night. We have also noticed foot prints being outside the windows when there was snow on the ground. We can send additional photos it needed & have also reported to Rebecca Swift. I do believe others in the community are noticing & possibly reporting. Thanks Danny & Zella Taylor

Switchyard Park is wonderful! Kudos to Parks & Rec. Two suggestions: 1 - Please install umbrella holders (or umbrella holders + umbrellas, but I recognize there could be more of a theft issue)at the wooden 'bleachers' at the pickle ball courts. 2) For both dog parks at Switchyard, erect shaded areas perhaps similar to the Ferguson dog park. Suggest two or three areas per dog enclosure. This could be esp. crucial for helping maintaining dog health during summer months. Also, install water hoses to clean dirt from paws + coat when play is over. Thank you for considering!
