People smoking (weed), people who didn’t pick up after their dogs (ewww), broken glass on the ground (c’mon, people, KIDS play here), and folks who just let their kids walk up to random strangers and talk to them while said strangers were trying to get their workout on.   Last weekend we hit our limit on how much we could take when we tried to do a circuit workout but with traffic on the road, and then stepping in dog poo during the workout, we were finished with the park once and for all.
