When I took this photo (Friday evening) there were half a dozen cars parked on the street all looking for "action", if you know what I mean, and there was loud music coming from the park.
The reputation itself doesn't bug me since I'm open to equality (not sex in a public park though) but the other users of the park have complained before and having a police station right next door would certainly stop some of the going-ons.
