Make the people who use these parks pay for them. I shouldn't have to subsidize someone’s hobbies or pastimes. Playing baseball or skateboarding is not a public good.

@Jd55604 You must not be a homeowner or property owner; you must be a renter. Because otherwise you would KNOW that nice parks INCREASE the value of your home or property and so you BENEFIT from improvements, so all property owners should be interested in parks and trails and in a sense do use them at the very least to increase the value of the home or property.
