Imagine a park


I have been in Downey over 26 years and I think this lot has been empty for most if not all of that time. I always wonder why the owner would not develop this prime property or sell it so someone else could use it. That is a long time to pay taxes on a non-contributing piece of property.

My wife was thinking that this lot could be turned into a park complete with trees and walkways for the residents to stretch their legs or stroll in their wheelchairs. What do you think?

The lot even has running water. I tried this tap and it works.
