    A woman should NEVER run/walk alone, especially at night, and should NOT take an unlit pathway!!!! USE YOUR BRAIN (and carry pepper spray and a friggin’ whistle)

  • Dan

    That is the park with the playground near Honey Dew. It is VERY DARK in certain areas near there. This might not happen again if a few lights were installed!

    ATTN: WMGLD – Put some lights up, PLEASE!
