Those who live in the area are glad to see the mess cleaned up, but have a message for those who left the tires and trash.
"We are looking out, we are watching as a block watch, we are sticking together and eventually you're going to get caught and we are going to turn you in," said Willy's Park Blockwatch leader Tina Scott.
Scott says this is the sixth time tires have been found in the area. City crews picking up the mess this morning say it's an ongoing problem.
"Well I believe in the recent few weeks, at least in the last month anyways, it's been over a 100 maybe 200 tires. Last year when I was assisting in this area there were about 100 tires," said Toledo Buildings and Grounds Maintenance worker Richard Kenyon.
Kenyon says he gathered around 60 tires on Wednesday.
The blockwatch is considering installing cameras to prevent future dumping.
"We are just hoping everything that we are doing now does detour them, and if we do have to put the cameras up we will," said Scott.
