Parks Inequality: Why are parks in the burbs so much better?
This past weekend we went to a birthday party out in Mountain House. You probably never heard of this town out near Livermore. It’s one of those track home communities out in the hot valley. It’s easy to blow off a place like MH but I was very impressed with their park. It was beautiful. This place was equipped with multiple Corocord rope play structures, water sprinklers for play, bocce ball, and big fields. There were no signs of litter, needles, or drunk folks hanging out either.
Sure some playgrounds and parks are decent in Oakland, but the suburban folks know how to do parks. Now if only the urban Parks and Rec departments can take note.

Please add to this list. These are the two parks I’ve personally experienced.
