Neighbors Ask City to Sell Park

In Knoxville, Tennessee, a neighborhood association has asked the city to sell off one of its parks. The reason? They have a surfeit of park space and want to focus their attention on another park nearby.

When a nearby interstate project put the first park at risk, the neighbors asked to have both sites. But after the interstate ended up not annexing the park, neighbors decided they had more than enough park to go around.

Sean Martin, a member of the neighborhood group, said ""We said rather than have two parks close together, why don't we put all our efforts into making Fourth and Gill nice," Martin said. "We're hoping to get three more nice houses.""
