Singers, Statesmen, and Saints

One trend that I hope catches on..........

Singers, statesmen, and saints, among others, have left their mark on the Brooklyn, NY landscape in the form of parks and playgrounds bearing their names. It’s a great tribute to a person to give his name to a public space. What better way is there to keep the name if not the spirit of a person alive than by turning it into something concrete, fun and functional?

The Douglas' Foundation here in CA have been spreading joy and healthy opportunities for children for about a decade now for schools in Los Angeles by donating playground structures to schools.

We have both coasts covered. What's happening in the mid-west? Brad Pitt is from Springfield, MO perhaps he'll catch on.
