Mitchell Park has become a haven for the unhoused

Has anyone else noticed that Mitchell Park (near the library and community center) has become a parking area for the homeless (unhoused is the preferred euphemism). You know the kind of car I mean, low slung or a microbus full of clothes and other items with windows covered up. Do these cars stay there overnight? Isn't that illegal? What I saw the other day was the ultimate low we have become. Someone was sleeping on the grass next to the teen drop-in center. Teens were playing ball at the center. Do we want Palo Alto to join the ranks of San Francisco as a homeless haven?
