South Park is a nice place now.
I like how we have a nice place to do runs and there is a small place to work out. The (authorities) did a good job renovating it because it used to look ugly and plain.
South Park is the major park near Maya at 51st and Avalon. It received a $12 million renovation last year.
The park has been around since 1910 and already featured a gym, a swimming pool, basketball and tennis courts, a baseball diamond, an outdoor stage and play area but things were getting run down and there were a lot of gangs.
The park has fresh equipment and new, colorful landscaping.
