a Lynchburg park has city officials focusing on safety. WDBJ7's Tim Saunders shows how extra police protection, and some help from the community, are improving the park's image. The ballfields and playgrounds of Miller Park hold special memories for people like Robert Flood. Robert Flood/Lynchburg Resident: "Miller Park was my second home. I used to go out there every day." It's where he learned to shoot hoops and make friends he's carried throughout life. Flood: "This is a sanctuary for young people. They have nowhere else to go." Recently, the park has gained an unwanted reputation. A violent fight on Memorial Day has led some to believe the area is dangerous. Flood: "If one person is doing something, you can't put it on everybody else." Flood is one of several community members that's working with Lynchburg Parks and Recreaction, to help restore Miller Park's image. Kay Frazier/Parks And Recreation Director: "So many people were upset that our parks and groups of people were branded a certain way." Together the two sides are developing a campaign called "Share the Parks." Monthly events will be held to encourage kids and families to spend time in places like Miller Park. More city staff and police officers are patroling the parks, to keep the areas safe on a daily basis. Frazier: "Our parks and our trails are some of the greatest assets the city of Lynchburg has. We want them to be places that people can enjoy, be proud of, and be a part of." STANDUP: The focus of the campaign right now is Miller Park, but city leaders want to eventually expand the program to promote all of Lynchburg's public recreation areas. The programs will be based on feedback from people who use the parks. Flood: "Whatever you can bring to the table can help us make this even bier." The idea is to give families a safe space that everyone can use, at all times of the year, keeping Miller Park a sanctuary for future generations. In Lynchburg, Tim Saunders, wdbj7. The first "Share the Parks" event is next weekend. "Music at Miller" will be feature live music, games, and free food. It's next Saturday from 3 to 6 in the afternoon at Miller Park.
