ROSELAWN (FOX19) -

A group of concerned citizens and community support groups want to reclaim ROCURC Park at the corner of Reading and Section Roads in Roselawn.

Patti Hogan helps with the program Good Guys Loitering.

"We go set up our chairs and we might bring a cooler. We reclaim that spot for the good guys,” said Hogan.

"Most of the residents of Roselawn are long term residents 20, 30, 40, 50 years residents. So it's important that our identity stay what we want. Not loitering, not gambling, not drug sales,” said Roselawn Community Council President Ronald Mosley.

As part of the Roselawn Neighborhood Enhancement Program, CPD is joining Roselawn residents, Good Guys Loitering and Citizens on Patrol to show a positive presence at ROCURC Park.

Caryl Fullman has lived in Roselawn for nearly 50 years and has seen many changes at the park. She hope this change will be for the better.

“My hope is that this very attractive space can be utilized for health activities, children's group; people just coming to sit and have lunch,” said Fullman. 

Community organizers say they would like to use the park as a space to host a farmers market and concert events.
