It must be summer in the North End as 50-100 teenagers are seen regularly gathering along Commercial Street around the bocce courts and skating rink on weekend nights. A resident sends in this photo from Friday night expressing concerns of trash, broken bottles, and a huge mess left for others to clean up.
The location has a history of fights breaking out, often as kids come in from other neighborhoods. Police cars flash their lights as they drive by making the teens scatter but they reconvene within a few minutes, according to the resident. A few years ago, the park saw extensive vandalism.
