This park appears to be on Boren Ave, which is a major thoroughfare and heavily traveled in the evening, so you might wonder why an attack could occur here, but what isn’t obvious is the terrain of Horiuchi Park. The park has a small flat area on top, accessed from Spruce Street, but the bulk of the park is a steep slope down to Boren Ave that is not used. So, if you are on the Spruce Street level of the park, sightlines from Boren Ave are cut off by the elevation change. Be careful out there.
