Fight Breaks Out at Ballard Commons While Kids Play

No Words

Sometimes you see a piece of video and are just left shaking your head. Tuesday evening, a witness says a fight broke out at Ballard Commons Park between a well known homeless guy and a dude with dreads. At the same time, a little kid just scampers through the outdoor fountain play area, totally oblivious to what’s going on.

Thankfully it ended without anyone being seriously injured. Adults, let’s try to set a better example for the children. This all went down as the Seattle Parks (@SeattleParks) concierge was packing up the large chess set and signs. No park rangers or police nearby. Councilmember Dan Strauss’ (@CMDanStrauss) district remains problematic. But so far, crews have been able to prevent a massive tent encampment from taking over this park. That’s a good thing.

Back in March

After more than a year of waiting, Ballard Commons Park finally re-opened. Overall, Seattle Parks (@SeattleParks) has taken multiple steps to keep it clean and free of tents. #Seattle
