11th and Monroe Park Drunk Speaks

Mad props to New Columbia Heights who spotted a phenomenal quote from the 11th and Monroe Park meeting notes: “Anonymous resident (self-described drunk who hangs out in the park): people in the park aren’t that bad, come on into the park, we welcome kids, we welcome the church.”

And it was answered with vigor, a Columbia Heights resident posts on the listserv:
“We’re beginning a play group for any/all kids at the park on 11th and
Monroe. The park has a history of being a wee bit unclean but most
days it’s passable and it’s hoped that citizen use of the park will
help us reclaim this space a bit. We did this last fall and it was
fun, never too dirty and never had any problems until the cold set in.

So, if you’re interested, meet at the CH coffee shop at 8:30 on 11th
(between park & morton) to grab a cup and then walk over to the park
shortly thereafter. I’ll be with the young 2 year old with blond
curls and probably my wife and new baby most days.”
