This was an issue when I was living on Albion Street from 2000-2005'ish. I always believed that it was someone in the neighborhood shooting up. This was never an issue in other Somerville parks from what I know. 10 years in a row is not just a random person or event - to say the least. I walk the bike path from Cameron to Davis Sq Station a few times per week with the fam and the cameras that are set up along the way are brilliant. I know that finances are tight for the city but if more become available for CCTV Albion Park would be worth consideration. Keep up the great work Courtney! : )
