TallMan Gets a Makeover

...well, not really TallMan, but his park:

Burnett Park Might Be Re-Designed

They are talking about making it more user-friendly, more of a park. Apparently, somebody has noticed that Noah needs more grass and less concrete in his park...as he's the only 'resident' of downtown who uses it as a park.

Otherwise, it currently gets used for:

a) lunching by downtown office workers who brownbag-it
b) a maze-like sidewalk for downtown office workers

So, as a resident and father of a downtown resident, I very much second the idea of making the park into what Mr. Burnett envisioned it when, in his Will almost 100 years ago, he dictated that it be made a park amongst the trees, for mothers and young children to be able to escape the unbearable heat of Texas and enjoy themselves. While we always enjoy ourselves there, it doesn't really beckon people to come and think of it as a park. It has more of a 'business park' feel to it, the kind that makes you feel like you need to keep moving, for fear of being ticketed for 'loitering,' just the opposite of what TallMan actually wanted.

I agree with your points , great post.

You definitely put a fresh spin on a topic which has been discussed for ages.
Wonderful stuff, just wonderful!

Today, I went to the beach with my kids. I found a
sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She put the
shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched
her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic
but I had to tell someone!
