What a pretty park this once was. Once again, Burt Hill, Kosar, Rittleman redesigned this park to be a cement, nearly treeless, shadeless mess. We have placed monuments helter-skelter.

The county should restore this park to the greenspace it was designed to be. Move the WWII monument to the very back to create some symetry with the park.

The Diamond looks tidy. I like it better that way.

Love these old photos! Mr Boyer looks like he tto might have been to the Park Hotel.
I remember the park being nice in the 50's and early 60's.
