Re: N.J. to turn 240 acres of Liberty State Park into wildlife oasis

Residents of DT might head to Berry Lane for a sports event, but not for casual park use. I'm not advocating FOR ball fields as much as I'm advocating that the precious small amount of DT parkspace NOT be used for ballfields! Creating alternate locations would do that. Your claim that there is already sufficient ballfields is proven false by the fact that these fields are currently DT and no one outside the approved organizations can use them. This is a misallocation of a scarce resource.
Strange, because it looks an awful lot like you're advocating for baseball fields, because you're upset that one close to you is controlled by the "JC Baseball Mafia."
If anything, it sounds like the solution is not necessarily to build more ballfields, but to improve public access to the ones already in existence.
Also, aren't there like 7 baseball fields at Lincoln Park? Are any of those publicly accessible?
I also have to reiterate that it seems like any sort of natural green space is incredibly scarce in JC, and Hudson County in general. We aren't living in the NJ Highlands, ya know....
