Seventh District Councilwoman Tonia Reyes Uranga will host a community meeting with concerned residents about ongoing activities at Somerset Park.
Somerset park is located at 1500 East Carson Street at the corner of Walnut Avenue. The 3.7-acre park includes a community center with programs for tots and youth, playground, tennis, volleyball and basketball courts.
Problems at the basketball courts will be one of the issues discussed at the meeting. Problems at the park came to light when a basketball game turned into a shooting match earlier this month. According to the Long Beach Police Department, 1 man was injured and 3 men were arrested after shots were fired during an argument on the court.
The 7th district community meeting will take place Monday, July 27 from 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Long Beach Police Department’s North Division Substation on the southwest corner of Atlantic Avenue and Del Amo Boulevard.
