Well, if there’s going to be a thread about the Phoenix Veldt… šŸ˜€

My issue with so many of our parks is that they are merely acres of grass. There is no landscaping. I was up walking out near the top end of Chesterfield Avenue and there was just a savannah of long grass on every side, with absolutely nobody around. The Veldt is essentially a enclosed piece of managed countryside or an immense version of those terrible estate greens that dot the city.

Maybe there’s something institutionally Irish to this. Maybe we can’t “do” park landscaping.
