Omaha Police Department's Neighborhood Meeting

Green Tree Park

129th & Meredith Avenue

Tuesday, 7 PM

A public park in Northwest Omaha is under siege by a small group of rowdy, violent and dangerous young people Omaha Police say.

Neighbors near the Green Tree Park off 129th and Meredith Avenue refuse to even let their children venture across the street to enjoy the playground.

One resident in the area told Channel Six News that public intoxication, fights and urination is not an uncommon sight around the park.

Now, Omaha Police are asking for help from neighbors to voice their concerns and talk about ways to take back the park in a public meeting Tuesday night.
