Furman Park grass

Dear Editor:For the second time this summer, my wife and I attended the Wednesday night concert at Furman Park and were dismayed at how bad the grass there has become. It's gone from grass with patches of dirt, to almost dirt with patches of grass. And what little grass is left in the concert area is full of huge weeds. How did this come to be? Our concerts may attract people from other cities and I'd think our city leaders would think this would be embarrassing, yet the poor condition of the grass at Furman Park has existed for years. Perhaps they are too busy running for higher political office to pay attention to the condition of our parks? John Powell Downey
