Ok… We’ve deleted all the comments on this post because they were off-topic. Thanks to My Ballard users who have pointed that out to us. We realize there are some users who enjoy fanning the flames, and that behavior is a violation of our rules (and could result in getting banned.)

Who’s going to chase of the homeless and cleanup the sharps first ! Then the ground needs to be disinfected before anyone uses it !

Ruh Roh, you said terrible nasty things here. Some just can’t handle the truth. Many deny the mess they created and the idiots foisting it upon us. But, we could have the 100 yard meth dash, or a heroin hurdle. We DO want diversity, right? I never ever go to this place. Too many alternative lifestyles for me. And besides, my vote NEVER matters and I’m told to just accept things today.

At least the Ballard Alliance and these fitness businesses are trying to help make the community better, what are you doing to help? Oh yeah, you are posting irrelevant, unhelpful, unfunny and childish comments here? You must be like 14 years old?

Commenting on a message board is doing more good than kicking people out of their homes just because it has wheels.

LOL, and I thought a 12 ounce curl was fake. The headline alone is comic relief. Banning people isn’t the answer. A better park for the people is. Perhaps this is the start of taking IT back? You know, for the children.

Adults, kids, teenagers, old people all use the park on a daily basis. You like to paint some fake apocalyptic picture of the park that is disproven as easily as visiting the park.

Not sure what you seek to gain from continually spewing false realities.

If you do enter the Commons be sure to stay out of olfactory range of the three Honey Buckets on the east side of the park!

Fun fact- two weeks ago there was only one there. Maybe the increase is to provide for men, women and mixed-gender group injections?

I won’t complain about more community activities at the Commons park. It seems like a perfectly fine use for the space. I’m a critic of the 1/2 million dollar toilet they plan on installing. When priced the same as two luxury sports cars it better be one hell of a toilet. I will complain about the deteriorating situation regarding the homeless in and around the park. The city seems incapable of doing anything about this. I’ve lived immediately adjacent to the park for 3 years and seen things get notably worse in that time. Currently at any given time there are between one and three dozen homeless either in the park or right next door. Usually congregated near St Lukes. A decent percentage of these folks are either experiencing severe mental health problems or are high/tweaked on hard drugs. Usually this isn’t a huge problem. The people with mental health issues are just doing their thing, maybe occasionally screaming at something in their head. The drug users are typically passed out on the grass or otherwise just baked on one of the benches. Day to day there is nothing really dangerous happening. There is oftentimes a lot of trash in… Read more »

One option would be a paid restroom with an attendant, similar to what they do in parts of Europe. The cost of this type restroom wouldn’t be that expensive but the attendants’ wages and cleaning/maintenance costs would have to be considered.
