Alhambra Park comes in as readers' favorite

We asked readers to tell us their favorite park in the city and Alhambra Park came in as their top choice. In a June survey, the park on Palm Avenue and Alhambra Road beat out other city green spaces with 12 out of the 24 votes, followed by Almansor Park which garnered 9. Two voters selected the "Other" option and wrote in Moor Field.

Respondents to Alhambra Source's June 21 survey.

In comments on FacebookTwitter, and our survey and story, readers also suggested ways to improve Alhambra's parks. Read their comments below and let us know what you think!

  1. I think the reporter would have done a more productive job if she had gone deeper. For example, why do people like Alhambra Park better? Is it because other parks are more ill-maintained? What is the status of the parks? Rather than asking readers, why didn’t the reporter go to the parks herself and take a look and report on it? A true journalist doesn’t just conduct surveys.

      Maybe you should conduct a survey asking everyone why they think their park is better than the others.

  2. I second the comment for parks allowing on-leash dogs. Come on, dogs are part of our families. Just provide a “poop bag” dispenser. As long as they’re on leash, what’s the harm?

    1. Get real, that’s like saying to every homeowner with a front yard/lawn “Provide a poop bag dispenser or I won’t clean up the mess my dog made on your front yard.”
      Under the law, dogs are considered property. You are responsible for your own poop bag and no one else. Most dog owners should be ticketed.
