"A raised boardwalk is supposed to protect the natural flora of the ground." This sentence refers to Chickasaw bluffs, not Teton Trek. Also, Get Off Our Lawn is a subsidiary of Citizens to Preserve Overton Park.

It's pretty frustrating to go to meetings at City Hall where everyone is at the table and everyone makes agreements/promises, only to have them undone again and again by Zoo leadership.

The Botanic Garden is not a public park. Overton Park is. The Botanic Garden sometimes allows cars to park in a field adjacent to the main property. That area is not a public greenspace. The Overton Park greensward was designed to be enjoyed by people, not cars. It is in the middle of the park. Using it as a parking lot is not only ruining it, it is affecting the overall enjoyment of the park.
The "Get Off Our Lawn" name is meant to be tongue in cheek.
