ORLANDO, Fla. - Parents were disturbed to learn several men were arrested during an undercover sex sting at an Orlando park that is packed with picnic tables and several soccer fields.

The suspects were taken into custody at Airport Lakes Park during an undercover sex sting, authorities said.

The park is where Colleen Fleshood's child goes for soccer camp.

"To be in a public place like this is really sad," she said. "It's absolutely sick."

Orlando police said they received complaints about sexual deviant activities happening in the park and that men were showing up day and night to hook up in the bathrooms and in the woods.

Authorities said they've even found condoms scattered around on the trails.

Channel 9 learned it isn’t the first time there's been a problem at the park. In June, police arrested eight men in another sex sting.

Despite the family friendly atmosphere, several websites suggest the park as a place to hook up.

Those who run the soccer camp said they have talked to parents about what happened and they're keeping a closer eye on kids and escorting them to and from the restrooms.
