Things I’d like to see done (or not done) at Murphey Candler Park:
1) No more pavement ANYWHERE! Baseball wants to add more parking throughout the park, and if they have their way, they would pave new parking areas vs gravel.
2) Keep all of the natural area as it is, with the exception of removing all non-native and invasive species (privet, kudzu, etc). Every arborist/naturalist I’ve talked to says the native understory trees and shrubs are desirable, and should not be cleared for new paths, picnic areas, and so forth.
3) Leave the upper field (County Corners) as an open play field. If the softball and baseball leagues need to use it for occasional practice, fine, but this should be left open for the general public to use.
4) Restore/renovate the caretaker’s house and convert it to a community center. The idea posted above
