Sitting in the parking lot at Sycamore Valley Elementary fields. Have seen a group of teens have a group workout, they arrived in multiple cars. Then watch a group of 14 20-30 year olds have a group workout. No one was trying to keep distance. Could the police PLEASE monitor this park. This is appalling.
