In Progress: The Commercialization of Parks

Original Art by Jessica Gray

Publisher’s comment:   A Restaurant on the Wildflower; A High School in Sugar Sand Park; A Tennis Center in Patch Reef Park…three recent attempts to ‘commercialize’ Boca Raton parks…three attempts pushed back by the ‘voice’ of residents.  A voice that could not be clearer; to wit:  Elected officials attempting to ‘commercialize’ the parks do not have their finger on the ‘pulse’ of this community.   To the residents:  Remember, stay alert, stay informed and, most of all, continue to let your voice be heard…Al Zucaro

  1. Maybe the city should entertain the thought of selling the naming rights to our parks, ie the professional sport stadiums.
    Minimum bid would be $250k and $50k each year to renew.

    “Batmasian Water Front Park”
    Crocker Open Spaces Reserve”
    Wood and Hendrey Park(no cost)
