Gables Trailer Park, 825 SW 44th Ave., is part of a 205-acre tract that the city is in the process of annexing. The city plans to tear down the trailer park and replace it with development.

The park has been there decades and is one of the last remaining properties in the area that is affordable to low-income seniors, the primary inhabitants of the park.
