iam just in the process of moving to the area and so have been looking up what the situation is in the area.
In particular i was very interested to uncover the two separate threads about anti-social behaviour and violence around Mint Street
Park. I was actually there at the weekend and noticed that the homeless guys and alchoholics are still there 3 years after the original thread- has the situation changed much since then?
I was kinda struck about a real sense of atmoshere around the park-and noticed the flowers tied to a lamppost at one end of the park-what happened there?
I was just really wondering if the situation had changed much-is the area still dodgy to go to on your own. I noticed someone doing a little bit of cleaning work there in the beds, which seemed to be unofficial, which together with the fun friday events are def the best way to reclaim the park for the area and make it the local peoples.
But whats the story with the homeless lads, is it still a bit volatile and whatever happened to this character colouramam man?
