Assault at Dwight Murphy Park

I beg to differ with SBSAND and I am not joking. Ortega Park is a beautiful pretty safe park now but it has taken a lot of work to get to this point. I live near the park and with Jason Dominguez's help, this park is much better but it has taken over 6 years to turn things around. It has meant getting involved & calling the police whenever necessary. SBPD & the SB Parks Dept. had been fabulous in their help with this park as well. As much as Alejandra Gutierrez & Mark Alvarado say they love this park & spent their childhood's playing in this park, they have not been involved in doing anything to make this park a better place in getting rid of the drug dealers and the homeless. I have never seen either of them in this park. They have both been vocal now about saving the murals at the park but this is the first they have been heard from since the park will soon be going through a renovation. A little late in my book.

Cynicism gets us nowhere. I agree we need better leaders in SB. Critical thinking at election time is what matters. It's an uphill battle for sure, against the status quo liberal standards that apparently have no problem with the homeless ruining our parks for the rest of us.

basicinfo= you really are a pearl clutcher aren't you? bandwagon jumper maybe? a new mayor isn't going to do crap about this. climb out of your fantasy realize this is A low priority. B, not one of you seems to have any of this correct. you complain about some homeless people in tents a block away. the park and dwight murphy field are not one in the same. as much as myself and my kids are down there, we have also not once had any problems with the folks living in the tent city. so why should you? don't like to look at them, living below the poverty line? then go help and stop judging people just because they aren't as well off as yourself. typical...

This has always been an unsafe and disgusting place, like Ortega Park. Back in the 80s, when I was a teen, we already knew these were 2 of the most unsafe places in town and to never go there. Like the fig tree... unless someone was looking for drugs. SB needs to spend more on cleaning up places like these so neighborhoods can actually have safe places for kids to play!

dude the park is fine, the bums camp out in the carriage museum parking lot. the park is separate and is safe, clean and just fine, i'm there several times a day with my dog and kids. we live about a block away. so this is factual information.

Another public, taxpayer-maintained park that has absolutely gone to h-ll. We all pay for the facilities there, and yet it's been given away to the homeless as a group, to do whatever they want there. It used to be places like Dwight Murphy were for recreation. Kid and adult soccer, softball. We used to play our club soccer there on that field back in the early 80's. Great memories. The best field in SB by far. Families would come out on sundays and watch big boys play in the the South Coast League.

We've really lost a lot here in SB. It's a real shame. The question is, what are we going to do about it?

So you walk Dwight Murphy park 3 times a day but your describing Pershing park..... How very typical of you.

Basicinfo, do you visit the park? do you walk around it, read there, or use the restrooms? I would take a long shot guess and say mostly likely not, never have and probably never will. I pay for it too, and in fact i'm walking through there every morning, afternoon and evening. I'm literally there 3 x a day. Sometimes more as its near my home and where i take my dog. So to address this, no they have not given it to the homeless. In fact, there are no homeless camps at the park itself and haven't been for about 4 months, which is why i question that you even go there. Kids and adults still play soccer there when there is no pandemic and they are allowed to. Now you mention the park and the field. The field is owned by SBCC, not the city. The park is owned by the city. Your tax dollars do not fund the baseball field unless you are part of the Foundation for SBCC. Which you are not. Just a month prior to the pandemic last year, there were nghtly soccer games, and weekend games for the kids. But you say there hasn't been? So all in all, i'm calling you out. You just were looking for a soap box to stand on and cry? You have all of the facts incorrect. Park and baseball field, two different places, different names and different owners. you claim they gave the park to the homeless. nope. none there sleeping. if you are referring to the tent city, that is on the park lot side that is owned by the City as the parking lot is part of the carriage museum which the city owns. You claim there are no people playing sports there now. Yeah the pandemic is responsible and as i stated, prior, it had nightly and weekly games. Maybe complain about something you know more about and somehting that is actually in your neighborhood.

"what are we going to do about it?"
We are going to elect the same union sponsored city council members who will again promise to do better but won't.
