The clock is ticking, and I am pleading. Please help us create an eight-acre park with room for sports, heart-healthy walks, quiet contemplation, a children’s playground, public events, and maybe even a dog park in Wall Park. (That’s the park that’s mostly a parking lot right next to the Kennedy Shriver Aquatic Center.)
