Georgian Hills Park: What Would You Like To See?

A Patch series asking you, what would you like to see in our city's parks.

 

Brookhaven becomes a city at 12:01 am on Dec. 17, and one of the responsibilities our new municipality will be undertaking is maintenance of local parks.

A couple of weeks ago, a loyal reader suggested this idea to us: Patch could serve as a source of information for our if we asked residents, what would they like to see in our city parks?

So, for the next eight working days (Monday through Friday, Aug. 20-29), Patch will be running a series of articles asking you: what would you to see in a specific park? Maybe slides or play areas, or more picnic tables, perhaps. What about swings, monkey bars, or baseball fields? Or maybe better lighting or safer parking areas.

We wrap up this week by asking your thoughts on Georgian Hills Park. So share your thoughts with us in the Comments section below, or drop us an e-mail. We'll be happy to publish it.

When I was a guide in the jungles of the Yucatan, male spider monkies would do that. When people totally engrossed with the canopy above would approach their territories, the monkies would first try pissing on them from above and then stick their little butts out and shoot turds. The monkies thought they owned the canopy too. Have you ever seen what a Harpy Eagle can do to one of those monkies? You had a potential ally; and the best you could do was shoot a turd. BTW, "Maven" doesn't necessarily mean one who just collects knowlege too.

The job is not being dealt with by Parks and Recs, the work order is with Facilities Management. They are the ones who have the work order now.

I must admit that I always seem to forget about Georgian Hills as an option if I want to visit a park. It does seem to cater to the very local residents--as it does not offer alot of space for dogs or a pool etc.. It is just a nice park for those in the area to have access to. don Gabacho....file your post above under "Why People Think I Waste People's Time with My Posts" for future reference. (BTW, learn what the plural for monkey is).

"...file your post above under "Why People Think I Waste People's Time with My Posts" for future reference."---Phil Why? When it is self-evident that both your posts and directives are a "waste of people's time"? "(BTW, learn what the plural for monkey is)."---Phil Shouldn't that be filed under spelling reminders? As it is, the conversation is about "the canopy" and not either your spelling lessons or directives; despite your being in sore need of faulty pronoun referencing.

Oh I forgot about that field house renovation. go by and take a look at the concrete driveway, part of it just replaced the asphalt, though there is new non permeable surface now. No trees were removed for it. The County paid for it. And that's a whole different story ------ the decision to do that rather than replace the old playground equipment or fix the eroding shoreline that is.
