The department of parks and rec wants your input on what parks should be
L.A. Streetsblog
Julian C. Dixon/48th St. Park on Hoover and 48th has been undergoing a makeover for the past couple of months. The small playground, cracked-up basketball court and small (but well-used) fitness zone sat like disparate islands floating along the edges of a sea of poorly kept grass populated by large, incongruous boulders. All lovingly enclosed within a hideously rickety chain-link fence. Aesthetically pleasing it was not.

Man faces trial for Perkasie pool party
The Philadelphia Inquirer
By all accounts, when nearly 800 guests descended upon Perkasie's public pool on a Sunday night in August, they wreaked havoc unlike anything the small town had endured. Music was blasting, people dove into the shallow end and flipped off the diving board, and empty liquor bottles were strewed across the premises at the Menlo Aquatics Center. "It was chaotic," said pool manager Tom Knueppel, adding that his staff had to rescue about 10 swimmers during the soiree.

Santa Fe, NM, commission asks about city's use of parks bond money
Albuquerque Journal
A city advisory committee is raising serious questions about how Santa Fe, N.M., officials spent a $30.3 million parks bond approved by voters in 2008. That includes why reported expenditures for some projects changed after they were completed, if the city actually implemented budgeted improvements at some parks even though in some case over-budget expenditures were made and why costs per acre are different for improvements at parks with similar features.
