February 2005: Park on morning after big event
February 2005, overscheduling result: Park staff work hard but huge events & multiple events mean that the Park cannot be properly maintained between events, leaving the Park in a condition that no one can completely enjoy.
KPPS is working hard to keep the Park free of the semi-permanent, inappropriate craft fairs that are encroaching on its open space; to keep parking available to Park users despite outside parking pressures; to ensure that commercial operations are not using the Park as their offices; to control noise levels from aircraft disobeying the noise abatement zone and concerts breaking the allowed decibel levels; to underground utilities to allow the viewplanes to be enjoyed; and to ensure that all can continue to enjoy the Park as a green oasis.
KPPS hopes to reach those who not only live nearby but those who live elsewhere and treasure the Park's history, magnificent trees, and green open spaces, in order to continue its successes in helping keep this wonderful historic park beautiful and accessible to all, to prevent its being carved up for commercial or special interest uses.
