Live 2 houses up! have 2 large dogs but still very apprehensive. making Randolf Woods a public park has surely contributed! trash and broken glass has increased and the suspect surely accessed the home through the park!H e probably parked in parking area below township maintenance building!? Empty township home, for years, another great move! I have walked those woods for 25 years and am very saddened by the public usage! I am tiring of picking up after others!!!!!!!

We have also had an increase in foot traffic since public opening. Many people cutting through my back yard. We also had a GPS stolen out of our car. Very frustrated!

Hi Beth, if your GPS was stolen this year, the police might have caught the perpetrator. They recovered a long list of electronics from a suspect's residence, but unfortunately, no GPS units—apparently they are easy to move. http://malvern.patch.com/articles/did-police-recover-your-stolen-electronics
