I went over to the Wednesday night concert at Furman Park this evening to see if there were any worthwhile pictures. My eye was caught by the endless dirt that has now taken over a large portion of the park. The part it has taken over is right where the crowd gathers to listen to the concert. As you can see, not many people bring their blankets anymore to sit on the grass, since there isn't any. Everyone is sitting in chairs now.
I was told that because of state-mandated restrictions, the city can only water the grounds at the park for 4 minutes per day for 3 days each week in the summer. It drops to twice a week in the winter. That's not much water. And, it doesn't matter if it's new water or recycled water. It's still 4 minutes per day for 3 days per week.
But part of me is wondering, why is the land just past that trailer in the background covered with green grass? While this portion is covered in dry dirt. Maybe this part's 12 minutes per week is being given to the grassy part. Just a thought. Here is another one, why not have the concert on the grassy part of the park?
What do you think?
