Coconut Grove

Neighbors protesting proposed park changes

Neighbors are quite concerned about a new exercise equipment area being added to Merrie Christmas Park. Construction is to begin today at the park on LeJeune Road and Barbarrosa Avenue. The exercise equipment is also being added to Myers Park on S. Bayshore Drive, it's all similar to the equipment at Kennedy Park.

Neighbors feel that the "cement based eyesore" does not belong in Merrie Christmas park, they feel it will destroy the park's natural beauty.
