Got Benches??

I recently came across an article in the Orlando Weekly from a few weeks ago about Hernandon Square Park in downtown Orlando. I do not remember the exact address of the park but it’s on a busy main street right bewteen the Lynx bus station and the Orlando public library. Anyways it’s a popular place to sit and relax around a few fake art pieces of animals and they have a water fountain or something with water their. I drove past it the other month and it looked different but I couldn’t put my finger on it. Till now… the benches that use to be in and around the area for people to eat their lunches on or just sit and relax were taken out of the area the day before Hurricane Charley came thru.

Now they were not taken up due to high winds or flood warnings, but because the homeless were using them and the area as a campground. People started complaining to the city that the benches needed to be cleaned and when upon investigation they found out something and then action was taken to get rid of them for the public’s well being. These so called relax here benches were being used for homeless people to urinate on. I know gross. I for one, will bring a blanket next time. So when you give the next homeless person a buck point out the nearest public restrooms and remember to say PLEASE!
