Re: “Staying Put

Why the bottom is let's just say it the ghetto? It's hard to get to for families who live in the West End, Midlothian, Chesterfield, Ashland and other suburbia areas. Familes is where parks make money not tattooed young people. I hope this area bounces back but a park in this area across from the bus depot and homeless people will not attract mom and dad trying to bring their two young kids consistently. Put it in the west end of Midlothian so you are near 64, 295 and 288. Easy traffic in and out, closer to their homes and also you likely pick up some Charlottesville crowd. Look at the where the other new minor parks are such as the one the braves built for the triple A team. They are not in a rough and hard to get to section. It's business people and not about "I'm so proud to live in the city section". That same city section who stopped coming to the braves and we lost the franchise, who never supported the pro basketball team, who never supported the hockey teams. It's about family attendance and making it easier on them to attend and want to go regularly.

Just my opinion so go ahead and rant about "you don't know what it's like man, the city is the coolest...yadda yadda". Well I've lived there and it is great but not for supporting sport teams.

Wake up and move the team to the west end or Midlothian so you are sold out nightly. Beautiful park by the way.
