“I’ve never even heard of Woody Park, so I think that would be a good idea. The parking by the hospital is terrible.”

“I see no need for additional parking at Lawrence Memorial. … If there is to be any alteration made, perhaps suitable accommodations could be found elsewhere to honor Mr. Woody.”

NO. No way. Absolute not. Don't do it. How many more ways do we have to say it? Leave the Park alone!

NO! Why cover up 4 acres?

Why not take it up up up on the newest lots? This could have been done during initial construction. It can be and should be done....... take it up and be efficient with space.

Why would they tear down Bert Nash?! It's in use still. I work next door to the hospital and from my perspective they have enough parking as it is. If the park is viewed as not being used enough, perhaps they could re-purpose it into something more useful than a parking lot.

Woody Strode was a really good actor. Donuts just hates Bert Nash for a reason which will be made clear one day. I don't think there is a good solution to this that will please everyone. But, I would be willing to bet a dollar that the park is going to go.

People are always complaining about their tax dollars being used to subsidize buses and golf, so why should mine be used to subsidize a park I don't use?
