Charlie Frias Park has looked less like a playground and more like a dump recently.

People who visit the park told 13 Action News the trash is building up near the wash, which runs right through the park.

When we went out to visit the park we found dumped shoes, a propane tank, and even a car seat.

"I would like to know how it got there, I can't imagine someone would dump that, would you?" asked Cynthia Ross who visits the park frequently.

13 Action News reached out to the county who said they are aware of the trash issues. They told us they plan to have a cleaning crew out in the next two days.

Ross also says she worries about kid's safety at the park, who are sometimes seen going into the wash. She said the metal bars that normally block people from getting into the drain have been broken.
