Notes:

From what i’ve seen it looks a bit like black nightshade, but has some small thorns on it. Curious if it’s of the nightshade family since it was near the swings and i would hate for someone to ingest one thinking it’s safe to eat. (there’s a lot of toddlers that dont have the best judgement that play at the park.) also, sorry for wrong region, central U.S. isn’t an option, nor is southern
